Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, even those with no prior symptoms. An on-site Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation, when waiting for an ambulance, in our sprawling community.


An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks a patient’s heart rhythm and sends an electric shock to the heart to restore normal rhythm. In order to ensure an immediate and effective medical response across the city, we are installing a portable defibrillator at every public institution in Efrat.


A gift of $1,800 will purchase a single defibrillator, to be installed in one of our many community buildings, alongside a plaque dedicated to our sponsor or memorializing their loved one.
