DALLAS, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Southwest Conference meeting in Houston, Texas, HeartSafe America and HeartSine Technologies announced the donation of thirteen HeartSine samaritan(R) PAD automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to local associations of the BOMA Southwest Region. These associations cover Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Because one American dies approximately every two minutes from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and because SCA is a leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming an estimated 325,000 lives each year, HeartSafe America and HeartSine are hoping to spread awareness of the need for additional CPR training and the need for AEDs in the workplace. As many as 30 to 50 percent of SCA victims would likely survive if CPR and AEDs were used within five minutes of collapse. Used together, these tools can mean the difference between life and death.
The HeartSine samaritan PAD automatic external defibrillator is ideal for BOMA member businesses and offers the following key benefits:
In addition to the donation program, HeartSafe America is also offering a generous discount to all BOMA members in the Southwest Region, and to tenants of member facilities.
Each of the following BOMA associations was offered the free AED donation: Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Tulsa, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Shreveport, Corpus Christi, Houston and Oklahoma City.
