Our hearts go out to those who are suffering during this COVID-19 crisis.  Due to our support of essential workers, we are still open for business and following CDC guidelines to protect our clients, the public, and our staff.  Many of our clients are Law Enforcement, Public Safety, First Responders and other important organizations that are still working to keep our communities safe. We are here to support their efforts to increase the odds of survival when cardiac events occur. 

Now more than ever is the time to protect employees, clients, and public spaces. Being proactive by keeping your safety equipment up-to-date is vital. Keep your Automated External Defibrillator (AED) ready for a rescue with pads and batteries that are within the expiration dates.  Does your AED manufacturer recommend a backup battery or set of pads?  Many do and if you are not sure, please contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.


Let's be smart, safe and vigilant to protect each other.
