No one should feel helpless when their loved one is suffering from a heart attack.
The Idaho Heart Foundation
is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and awareness of cardiovascular health in the community of Idaho Falls. We are currently focused on CPR and AED awareness and use. We are dedicated to purchasing AEDs for the community where they are most needed, such as schools and police cars, as well as other public places such as parks and museums.
To provide this service we will need to raise money to cover the cost of AEDs ($1000 each
) and public awareness demonstrations. This is all volunteer-runned, so we need your help! We hope to provide 100 AEDs
for this cause with appropriate training of both CPR and AED use to provide confidence in their use. By educating our community members and having AEDs readily available, we hope to make CPR and AED use as common as dialing 911. CPR saves lives, AEDs saves lives.
