Cardiac Arrest Emergency Response Plans

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death on school campuses, and the #1 killer of student athletes. That’s why it’s critical for your school to have a written and well-practiced Cardiac Emergency Response Plan (CERP). Created by a nation task force of health and safety organizations, a CERP is a vital step towards sudden cardiac death prevention.

This toolkit can be easily adapted for a sport facility, after-school club, camp and other places youth congregate.  

A simple example below that you can use to create your own.

AED Donations: Saving Lives Partnership Program

AEDs Save Lives – It’s That Simple

According to Parent Heart Watch, “Most occurrences of SCA in youth occur in public places.  The increased availability of publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in schools and school-sponsored athletic events will dramatically increase the probability that youth will survive SCA.”

​Evidence shows that schools with AEDs and an emergency action plan have a survival rate of up to 64% (versus the national average of a mere 8%).  – Parent Heart Watch

To date, The Peyton Walker Foundation has donated over 150 AEDs to schoolsathletic organizationsnonprofit public venues and other organizations that meet our criteria.


Make Your AED Accessible To Your Neighbors!

​If your organization/school will not be meeting or in session, please make your AEDs accessible and available to the community in case of a cardiac emergency.  If possible, bring the AED home and communicate to your neighbors that the AED is available in case of a cardiac emergency.

Also, we recommend contacting your local police and fire station to inform them of the address of where the AED is located. Please consider doing this for all the AEDs you have access to and spread them throughout your communities!

Additional training can be found on

Thank you for helping us to protect hearts and save lives!
