Welcome to the Livingston County AED Scavenger Hunt
There are 1.2 million AEDs in public use across the U.S. and 180,000 more are installed each year. Often the public cannot locate these AEDs. Participants will assist emergency responders by reporting the locations of AEDs across Livingston County. We want to locate and identify as many as possible so our first responders as well as the public can have access to them in the event of a cardiac arrest in that facility. The idea of the hunt is to raise awareness about AEDs and CPR training, and build a database of AED locations. There is a strong correlation between the time from collapse due to cardiac arrest, defibrillation and survival. More than half of all patients defibrillated in less than 3 minutes will survive, compared to just 1 in 5 defibrillated after 10 minutes. Having a publicly accessible AED could truly mean the difference between life and death. If you wish to be trained in CPR please contact us via email and or via Facebook for more information.
