Over 100,000 people suffer cardiovascular arrest every year,
often from ventricular fibrillation! Many could be saved
through the intervention of first aiders and with the help
of lay defibrillators (AED)!
The association "Aktion gegen Herzflimmern e.V." aims to
equip public institutions and associations with automated
external defibrillators (AED for short) and to train first
aiders in their use.
Since it was founded, we have already managed to purchase
44 AED with the help of donations and membership fees and
to install it in the Friesland district and around.
The association not only installs the AED, but also trains
first-aiders on site in how to use an AED, for example in
the volunteer fire department, in the sports club or in schools.
With donations from this campaign we would like to purchase a
new AED for the sports field in Obenstrohe!
