Due to a large number of high schools across the country that lacked access to
an AED on their campus, the NFHS Foundation Board felt strongly that this situation
posed a serious health and safety risk to students, coaches, fans, etc. Therefore, the NFHS Foundation established a
goal of providing one AED to each high school that did not 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.
