$3.5 Million in Reimbursements for Purchases of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for Texas Schools Still Unclaimed With Deadline Approaching
Date:11/10/2008

WOODRUFF, Wis., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Of $9 million appropriated by the Texas legislature to reimburse State public and private schools for purchases of automated external defibrillators (AEDs), $3.5 million remains unclaimed. Texas schools are still eligible to make an AED purchase under the reimbursement program until the November 14, 2008 deadline.

AEDs are portable defibrillators used by lay people with CPR training to resuscitate victims of cardiac arrest and have been deployed on thousands of school campuses nationwide. Texas Senate Bill 7 mandates at least one AED per school campus.

Reimbursements are facilitated by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Sources at TEA verified the funding availability, but had no information on what happens to any unused monies.

"The time is now for any Texas school to take advantage of the funding before it disappears," said Jonathan Dobbs, sales manager of AEDSuperstore.com. "Depending on the unit's price, a school's AED purchase could be free by using the $1475 maximum reimbursement."

According to TEA documents, those eligible for AED reimbursement funding include any "...school district, open-enrollment charter school, or private school campus..." who purchased an AED device on or after June 1, 2007 to meet the availability standards prescribed by the University Interscholastic League. Eligibility requirements and application materials may be found on the TEA website at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/taa/formfund100608.html.

To assist Texas schools in starting an AED program, the AED Superstore staff has offered to expedite orders and paperwork to help school administrators meet the current funding deadline. "We believe in the life-saving importance of AEDs in schools and, to that end, we have thousands of AEDs in stock ready to deploy," said Dobbs.

To receive AED reimbursement funds, eligible schools must submit forms to Dina Hernandez at the TEA Division of Formula Funding. She can be reached at (512) 463-8525 or via email at formula.funds@tea.state.tx.us. Forms must be received by mail or hand delivered by 5:00pm November 14, 2008 without exception.

The AED Superstore(R) is a privately held subsidiary of Allied 100, LLC of Wisconsin and is the world's largest source of automated external defibrillators (AEDs), accessories, and AED programs to businesses, schools, churches, homes, and individuals.
