San Diego Project Heart Beat (SDPHB), San Diego County’s Public Access Defibrillation Program, has one main goal: “to save lives through early defibrillation.”
To reach that goal, our objective is to make automatic external defibrillators (AED’s) as accessible as fire extinguishers throughout the region.
AEDs are a most vital link in the chain of survival for victims of Cardiac Arrest. Cardiac Arrest is still the leading cause of death in the US and in our county. It is not easy for some of our most needy organizations to obtain AEDs, due to a lack of funding. SDPHB offers financial assistance to non-profit organizations through a grant assistance fund that has been established solely for the purchase of AED’s.
By joining our San Diego Project Heart Beat Team, you can help make the difference between life and death for a member of the community, which may even be your loved one. AEDs bring the necessary therapy to the side of the Cardiac Arrest victim in need, in the timely manner in which that therapy is needed, within minutes.
Please join our cause to make a difference in placing more AEDs throughout our San Diego County communities!
