Granted AED Saves Georgia Student’s Life

Granted AED Saves Georgia Student’s Life

It was a routine morning at Carrollton High School in Georgia. Students were hanging out before class when a sophomore student suddenly collapsed. The staff immediately went into action, locating the school’s automated external defibrillator (AED) which is used in sudden cardiac arrest emergencies. Thanks to their quick action the student’s life was saved without any long-term health consequences.

The AED used to save his life was awarded by Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation in partnership with CLEAR Coalition, an organization that provides AEDs and critical training to schools and organizations in Georgia.

 “This grant award truly made all the difference in this student’s outcome and we couldn’t be more grateful.”
– Craig George, Assistant Superintendent of Operations, Carrollton City Schools
