Sign the Petition to

U.S. Secretary of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

We, the undersigned agree with the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Coalition and its member organizations that automated external defibrillators (AEDs), along with emergency action plans should be in all schools and places of public gathering, including sports venues, shopping malls and places of business.

By signing this petition you lend your voice to the voiceless victims of SCA and join those fortunate few who have survived a SCA in saying "No more needless deaths; AEDs save lives and should be in our schools and places of public gathering."

Signed,

Lisa Yue
