San Antonio Federal Credit Union (SACU) is doing more than just coming to the aid of ceramic cows-it has also purchased and installed Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in all of its full-service branches and on all floors of their corporate offices. Employees at each location are being trained to use the equipment, which is to assist those struck by cardiac arrest. The equipment was manufactured by Cardiac Science. "We are doing this because we know it is the right thing to do," said CEO Jeffrey Farver "These life-saving devices are safe, easy to use, and a vital part of an emergency response process that the American Heart Association estimates could save 50,000 lives every year."
