Sudden Cardiac Arrest claims one life every 2 minutes, taking more lives
each year than breast cancer, lung cancer or AIDS. Since 2003 Heart Safe
La Plata has been placing AEDs all around our community. We now have 337
AEDs covering Durango, Bayfield, Ignacio, and Silverton.
Lives have been saved and many more could be.
The AEDs originally came with a five-year warranty. Many of them need
to be replaced. We are asking our community for help. We are looking for
companies, groups or individuals to sponsor our locations that need new
AEDs. There are schools, churches, and local businesses that need your
help. You may choose from our list of locations urgently needing replacement
or let us select a location for you in the city of your choice.
The cost of replacing each AED is $1,250. For providing this sponsorship
funding, we will indicate your donation
with a placard at the chosen site
your information will be listed in our biannual
your information will be listed on our website
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and your donation will receive an official
acknowledgment letter. Make checks payable to: Heart Safe La Plata, 142
Sheppard Dr. Durango, CO 81303. Contact any one of our Board
