Veteran’s Memorial Aquatic Center was recently approved for the placement of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) from the Iowa Heart Foundation. The Iowa Heart Foundation program awards AEDs to businesses and organizations in an effort to increase survival rates in Iowa related to Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) strikes more than 350,000 Americans each year, which equals about one death every two minutes. With early treatment of CPR and an AED, those who suffer SCA nearly double their chance of survival. For each minute without such treatment, the chance of survival decreases by 7-10 percent.
