The Rural and Community AED Program

I wanted to let you know about an important development in the fight against sudden cardiac arrest. In the President's recent budget proposal we learned that the Rural and Community Access to Emergency Devices Program has been slated for elimination this year.

Your help is needed right now to rescue this lifesaving program - take action today and ask your members of Congress to restore funding.

The Rural and Community AED Program provides states with grants to purchase automated external defibrillators, train lay rescuers and first responders to use AEDs and place them in public areas where cardiac arrests are likely to occur. The program provides rescuers with tools to help save lives.

You're the Cure advocates have helped make a difference on this issue in the past - as this is not the first time this program has been on the chopping block. We will continue to keep you updated on this issue as the process moves along over the course of the year. This is the first step in fighting for this critical program. Thank you for your help and your continued support.
