Due to a large number of high schools that lacked access to
an AED on their campus, the Foundation Board felt strongly that this situation
posed a health and safety risk to students, coaches, fans, etc. and establish a
goal of providing one AED for high schools who did currently have one on
campus. In 2018, the NFHS Foundation Board approved funds to purchase 600
AEDS for high schools across the United States and shipped them out in early
2019. Click here for article.
