Now that we have raised awareness for the importance of knowing CPR during CPR Week, hopefully you have taken a minute to watch the 60-second video on Hands Only CPR. Share it with your friends and family so that everyone around you knows the basics of 1) calling 9-1-1, and 2) doing compressions hard and fast in the center of the chest. But do you know where the nearest AED is in case you need it?
AEDs (automated external defibrillators) are located in public places, libraries, schools, business, etc. Chances are, there is one very near where you work or go to school. This is a great opportunity to locate the nearest AED to you and raise awareness for where they located throughout your community.
To help raise awareness for AEDs, we are launching the AED “Selfies Save Lives” campaign. Snap and share a selfie when you spot an AED - then post it to social media useing #AEDandME!
Where is YOUR nearest AED?
