AED Financial Assistance Program

According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) kills more than 450,000 people every year. Recent studies have shown that without defibrillation, the likelihood of survival decreases at the rate of 10 percent for each minute that passes. Knowing what to do during one of these emergencies is a valuable, lifesaving skill. To that end, our goal is to strategically locate AED devices where their life saving potential will be greatest.

In an ongoing commitment to promote the safety and welfare of our citizens, Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation will offer financial assistance in the amount of up to $500 for Automated External Defibrillator (AED) devices for any school, business or organization in Clackamas County.

The application process is simple:

  • An AED request form must be submitted for approval as well as a letter describing your business or establishment.
  • Upon approval, the requesting agency will be sent a letter of commitment
  • AED receipt and installation will be tracked
  • Your facility will arrange AED training
  • The local 9-1-1 center will be updated with new AED locations

Your commitment to this important initiative is appreciated. We are committed to helping keep our community safe and productive, and your facility's participation in this program will enhance the well being of our community. For questions about the AED program, please contact EMS Administrative Assistant Deidre Toczyski at 503-742-2648 or via email at

We provide support and guidance for those interesting in purchasing and deploying AEDs.
