We have donated more than 180 AEDs across the United States as part of our Coro Cares program. Coro Cares is an initiative focused on educating and equipping communities, community members and first responders with the tools they need to save lives. Making sure communities are prepared for any critical cardiac situation is a priority of CoroMed. Educating communities on the importance of AEDs and how to use them is extremely important to us.

Our first quarter AED donations include EMS World headquarters, My Friend’s House of Middle Tennessee, and Central Philippine University College of Nursing.
My Friend’s House Family and Children Services, Inc. is a non-profit corporation chartered in 1982 to provide therapeutic services to children. My Friend’s House of Middle Tennessee opened in 1988 and serves as a residential group home for boys, ages 12-17.

“I know that every day I come to work, I am playing a part in saving someone’s life. I am passionate about these devices and am always looking for new and innovative ways to spread awareness and knowledge about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). I look forward to the day when everywhere I go, I will see an AED—when SCA will no longer take any lives.”
