Lee County Students Safer with AEDs on all Campuses


In a cardiac emergency, every second counts. Now, students and visitors will have faster access to lifesaving AED units at all Lee School District campuses.

With a $150,000 donation from the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, Lee School District placed AEDs in all middle and elementary schools and implemented an emergency response plan, with 3-5 staff members specifically trained to use the AEDs.

This joint public-safety project has earned every school in the District the Project Adam Heart Safe designation. Funding for this initiative was provided by the Lee Health Foundation’s Little Red Wagon Fund, which seeks to protect SWFL children.
