About this Campaign
We are fortunate to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) in all our schools. Health Services is asking for funding to provide a second AED in our high schools. Our Cardiac Emergency Drills show this would benefit our response time and every second counts in cardiac emergencies!
• Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is leading cause of death on school campuses.
• It requires intervention within minutes to avoid permanent brain damage or death in (SCA).
• Defibrillation within 3-5 minutes increases survival rates by 50-70%!
Lincoln Public Schools currently has 79 students in our High Schools with a cardiac condition that put them at a greater risk for SCA although SCA can happen to anyone, at any time.
• Having a strategically placed AED and a well trained Cardiac Emergency Team to respond is the best plan.
Please consider funding this campaign and helping our high schools be heart-safe! Requesting $2,500 plus cost reimbursement.
Thank you for your consideration!
