Mountain View, CA - November 17, 2014 - A new effort launching today could help turn ordinary Mountain View residents into life-saving heroes. By installing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) at high-risk locations throughout the city, the program aims to reduce deaths from sudden cardiac arrest.
"Sudden cardiac arrest is a killer, but it doesn't have to be," said Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian, whose district includes Mountain View. "These 21st-century AED's are as close to foolproof as anything can be, and blanketing the community with them really can save lives."
