Take Action!

Thank you for recently supporting the American Heart Association by participating in National CPR/AED Week.  Your actions can truly make a difference in the fight against heart disease.  

You can also help save lives by supporting a proposed law that would greatly enhance the training and placement of AEDs in schools.   Click here to tell your U.S. Senators to support the Josh Miller Hearts Act. 

The Josh Miller HEARTS Act was prompted by the tragic death of a 15-year old high school student who suffered sudden cardiac arrest at a school without an AED.  The bill would establish a grant program so that more schools can purchaseautomated external defibrillators (AEDs) and be trained to use them as part of an overall medical emergency response plan for school communities. 

This bill has already been passed by the U.S.House and is only a couple steps away from becoming law.  Just click on the link below to take action today.  Thanks!
