When someone has a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, (is not a Heart Attack) from one second to the next, the victim:
* Has no heartbeat
* Is not breathing
* Organs start to die in 3 minutes
CPR will buy the victim minutes. The only thing that can restart a heart is an AED, or Automated External Defibrillator.
Our mission is to save lives by providing AED locations to EMS systems and searchable on smartphones globally.
