Cintas has established the ReviveR Provider Police Grant Program to give automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to police agencies.

Officers are often the first to arrive on the scene of a sudden cardiac arrest. If first responders have AEDs available to use before an ambulance arrives, they can often save a person’s life.

Police departments across the country are eligible to apply directly for the grant online at the program’s Website. Four times a year, a department will be selected to receive four AEDs along with associated AED training from the American Heart Association. Through a civic underwriting program, qualifying non-profit and civic organizations interested in purchasing AEDs to present to local police departments can apply for special financing support.
