AtlantiCare Heart Heroes AED Matching Funds Program

A partnership to place automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in our community

The AtlantiCare Heart Heroes is an AtlantiCare Foundation-funded program that places AEDs in the community on behalf of the Heart Institute at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. The program began in 2002, spurred by a small group of dedicated AtlantiCare volunteers who were known as “The Heart Heroes,” who raised funds to help AtlantiCare make AEDs available in the community. Their efforts combined with Foundation led fundraising activities have raised the funds necessary to place over 200 AED’s throughout southeastern New Jersey.

Organizations requesting an AED   upon approval of matching funds must:

  • Notify local Emergency Medical Services office that it holds an AED
  • Have a licensed physician or medical authority provide medical oversight to ensure quality control
  • Have personnel responsible for using the AED certified in CPR and use of an AED
  • Conduct programs or services for the public where  there is potential for emergency response to a heart attack

*Meeting criteria does not confirm matching funds will be granted.

(Matching funds program - $700 per AED)
