Local non-profit Arrhythmia Alliance and the Town of Bluffton have placed a further five public access defibrillators (PADs) around Bluffton. The five defibrillators were all officially placed by August 2, 2017.
Earlier this year, Arrhythmia Alliance, in partnership with the Bluffton Town Fire Department, (BTFD) launched the A-A Defibs Save Lives – #BlufftonHeartsMatter campaign. The Defibs Save Lives campaign is a local and national education-based advocacy program that equips communities with the necessary tools to implement the chain of survival during sudden cardiac arrest.
According to Arrhythmia Alliance Founder Trudie Lobban MBE, “We are thrilled that the Town have followed through on their promise to donate five PADs to the Arrhythmia Alliance Defibs Save Lives – #BlufftonHeartsMatter campaign. Following the placement of 31 AEDs in all the Bluffton Police vehicles we then partnered with BTFD to make Bluffton Heartsafe. It is wonderful to have the support of the Town and Mayor to support this great campaign.”
