Additional AED Handover Events
On Friday, September 22, our Program Coordinator met with five representatives from First Scots Presbyterian Church of Beaufort at Holy Trinity Classical School in Beaufort, South Carolina. The representatives were given a demonstration on how to use an AED before they were handed their new AED.
Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce - August 11, 2017
Arrhythmia Alliance and the Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce have come together to place an automated external defibrillator (AED) in the chamber. This placement of the new AED took place on August 11, 2017.
With this newly placed AED, the Hilton Head and Bluffton areas will become even more HEARTSafe. Earlier this year, the non-profit placed defibrillators in Bluffton’s Dubois Park and All Joy Boat Ramp. Arrhythmia Alliance’s campaign Defibs Save Lives #BlufftonHeartsMatter raised enough funds previously to equip all 31 police vehicles with AEDs.
According to Arrhythmia Alliance Founder Trudie Lobban MBE, “We are thrilled that the Hilton Head – Bluffton Chamber of Commerce have agreed to place an AED in their building and support the Arrhythmia Alliance Defibs Save Lives campaign. Following the placement of 31 AEDs in all the Bluffton Police vehicles we then partnered with BTFD to make Bluffton Heartsafe. It is wonderful to have the support of the Chamber to support this great campaign.”
