2015 Caring For Our Community Award

With support from the district's Health Services Department, ASB students and PTO groups, AED programs have been implemented in all high school and middle school buildings, as well as four elementary schools. Our school nurses lead volunteer staff in annual AED drills helping potential responders better prepare for on campus cardiac emergencies.

Every year nearly 400,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. With quick access to an AED lives are saved and the risk of lasting brain damage upon recovery is drastically diminished.
