Discover why police departments rely on Powerheart® AEDs
When a 911 call is placed, police are typically first on scene to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) emergency – a condition that kills more than 369,000 people annually in the United States. Because the only effective treatment for SCA is an immediate shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED), police must act quickly.
AEDs can also help to protect your officers and staff members: Data show that, due to high stress levels and workload, law enforcement is among the highest-risk professions susceptible to SCA. Moreover, officers are more susceptible to SCA when pursuing or restraining suspects.
Cardiac Science understands the critical role law enforcement plays during a cardiac emergency and has developed a suite of Powerheart AEDs that are ready to use, intuitive, and rugged.
The critical factor? Having an AED within reach. Fast.
An ideal partner
An ideal AED partner should understand the inner workings of a police department or sheriff’s office. Perhaps this is why Cardiac Science is so successful working with law enforcement agencies to implement life-saving AED programs: We know law enforcement and build AEDs accordingly.
Adding AEDs to the budget
Budget constraints and state tax laws can delay funding for AED deployments. Our Certified AED Specialists have the experience and know-how to implement an AED initiative. We have teamed with departments of every size to outfit vehicles and facilities with Powerheart AEDs.
As a leading provider of AEDs to law enforcement, our years of experience can help departments develop or strengthen an AED program.
SCA Survivor: Lt. Regis Thimons
Lieutenant Regis Thimons, a detective at the St. Joseph County Police Department in Indiana, was found by a fellow officer in the restroom – unresponsive, no pulse, in a pool of blood from where his head had hit the floor. He had collapsed from SCA. Quick-thinking officers began chest compressions and located a Powerheart AED. He received four shocks, and his pulse returned by the time paramedics arrived.
The availability of the AED that saved his life is the product of years of preparation – for which Thimons himself is largely responsible. Years earlier, Thimons worked with HeartReach Michiana, an organization that purchases and distributes AEDs as part of its non-profit mission, to equip his department’s patrol vehicles, the county jail, and the courthouse with AEDs.
“If it wasn’t for one of these devices, I probably wouldn’t be here today,” said Thimons.
