Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is not a heart attack. It is an abnormality in the heart´s electrical system that abruptly stops the heartbeat. When this occurs blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs causing loss of consciousness and often seizure-like activity.
In an effort to provide low-cost programs, we have partnered with American Health & Safety Training, Inc. to offer certification classes to the public at a discounted price to schools, coaches and parents. We will help plan fundraisers for schools in an effort to get AED placements.
Darius Jones Foundation and our partners has established an AED placement program offering AED'S to schools and facilities were people gather. One of our partners, AMR, will offer a limited supply of free AED'S throughout Contra Costa County.
