Danbury Hospital EMS Community Outreach Program
Public Access Automated External Defibrillator Deployment Initative
Through a generous donation by the 2010 Danbury Hospital/Danbury Office of Physician Services Family Campaign, 70 Automated External Defibrillators (AED) will be available at no cost to eligible organizations.
The initiative seeks to improve the chance of survival of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims. SCA is a leading cause of death, often striking victims with little warning. It has been shown that with rapid initiation of bystander CPR, and with early use of an Automated External Defibrillator, lives can be saved that would otherwise likely be lost.
