Community Partners

Community Partners

Throughout our 20 years in business, we have formed many bonds with our clients in improving access to training and AED access. Here are some of our clients who are taking the steps towards a safer workplace/living area and increasing the odds of surviving an out of hospital cardiac arrest.

Hawaii DOT-Airports

The Hawaii Airport contract is one of our most sophisticated projects and is what brought our founder, Pamela Foster, to Hawaii from California. It started out with 100 Welch Allyn AEDs statewide at 13 different airports. In the first 45 days of the program, the save rate was 3 people surviving neurologically intact out of 3 cardiac arrests. This was a 100% save rate compared to 0% save rate prior to the AED program. To date, we have 303 AEDs across the 13 airports with 86 people people being saved. This brings our save rate to 85%. Out of hospital cardiac arrest survival rates in the community is around 10% in the state of Hawaii showing how unique and efficient our airport system is. As part of our contract, we provide free CPR/AED & Stop The Bleed training to the public at the airport conference center. We support the ARFF, Sheriff, TSA and other agencies at the airport in training, AEDs and medical direction.

Kapili Roofing

Kapili Roofing has been a big community partner and a client we hold dear to us. While watching a softball game, one of the company member's wife suffered a cardiac arrest. A member in the crowd had an AED and had luckily stayed later than they were suppose to. This person was able to recognize the situation and start chest compressions. The AED was used and the wife was saved. Due to this incident, for their 15th anniversary, Kapili Roofing bought and donated 15 AEDs to multiple organizations as well as sponsored trainings.
