AED Donations and Awards

About the AED Program

Studies have shown that successful resuscitation of the cardiac arrest patient is dependent upon citizen response prior to 911 Responders arrival. Actions to be taken by the public, in cases of cardiac arrest, should include: 911 notification, CPR, and Defibrillation (AED).


Based on this recent data, it is an objective of the Mile-High RETAC SMART/CPR Program to assist organizations with the deployment of public access AEDs. Through private donations and funds from the Mile-High RETAC annual Golf Tournament, AEDs are purchased and made available through a grant request process (see documents). The focus of these grant awards is to place AEDs in locations that will impact the greatest number of citizens. Grant priorities include:

  • Locations of Public Gathering (Town Halls, Community Centers, Churches, etc.)

  • Educational facilities

  • Emergency Service Responders


All awards are based upon potential for citizen impact; organizational financial need; and organizational ability to maintain an AED Program.
