While up to 95% of the municipal police agencies in NJ carry AEDs, Harrison Township unfortunately lags behind. Federal and state funding is lacking in this area, and 80% of departments have obtained their units through the generosity of their communities. These devices are lifesaving--increasing the likelihood of surviving a cardiac arrest by 25%. When seconds count, having our police equipped with AEDs makes all the difference.
We've partnered with manufacturers to identify discounted pricing and grant support to purchase six AEDs for our local police department. While we hope these devices never need to be used, the data show that almost 80% of officers are called to a patient in cardiac arrest every year. Coupled with the dedicated training to guarantee their effectiveness, we hope to have these units in service before the weather turns warm and summer hits--and pediatric medical emergencies skyrocket.
All funds collected will be used to buy AEDs for the Harrison Township Police Department. Please help us make sure our local police are ready for the worst!
