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!
