AED on POLICE and Military
Whether you are a government employee or a military member, you may be called on to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Unlike heart attacks, it can strike people of all ages and fitness levels. And the only effective treatment is a shock from a defibrillator, administered as soon as possible. Public access defibrillation programs are ideal solutions for military bases with busy public areas such as hospitals, clinics, housing, barracks, and commissaries.
As a police or law enforcement officer, you are often the first responder in a cardiac emergency arriving before emergency medical personnel. Unfortunately, this scenario is not rare. The only effective treatment for SCA is shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED), administered as soon as possible. The life you save with an AED could be that of a fellow police officer; between the high-risk of the job and the levels of stress, police officers are among the highest-risk groups for SCA.
