Eagle Scout Installs Lifesaving AED Units in Local Parks

Imagine being at a local park when someone nearby experiences sudden cardiac arrest. Easy access to an automated external defibrillator, or AED, could mean the difference between life or death for that person.

Unfortunately, in many public parks in communities across the nation, there may be no AED available.

For Eagle Scout Jack M., of the Boy Scouts of America Monmouth Council, making the community a safer place was an important goal. For his Eagle Scout project, he decided to install the lifesaving units in the four public parks in his city.

To learn more about how Jack raised funds, installed the devices, and organized an instructional seminar on how to use the devices, be sure to read the full story on centraljersey.com.
