2200 Project:

Purchase of AED Device (Automated External Defibrillator)

Affiliate:
Temple Israel

Project Cost:
$1,200

Funding Need:
$1,200

What it’s all about:

We are looking for $1,200 to purchase 1 AED Device.  Our wish is to have 2 devices for our synagogue, however we will purchase one ourselves.  We feel this is an important item for our synagogue and adds to the overall responsiveness we can provide in a life-threatening situation.  An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background. Time is of the essence: The average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes.  An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a device used to administer an electric shock and restore the heart's normal rhythm.  Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is the abnormal heart rhythm that most often leads to sudden cardiac arrest. It is treatable with an AED.
