ADVOCATES FOR HEALTH

A SaveStation Distributor and a 501(c3) organization

501c3-300x300

Advocates for Health is an authorized SaveStation distributor and a certified 501c3 non-profit organization. A SaveStation is a temperature controlled, monitored cabinet that is used to house any brand of Automated External Defibrillator (AED). However, SaveStation is more than an AED cabinet. Implementing SaveStations in our cities is a movement to create a public awareness program which provides critical education about CPR and how to use an AED. SaveStation supports the need to get AEDs out from behind locked doors and out of closets and into the public to use in an emergency.

In 2018, a SaveStation pilot program was successfully executed in Sartell, MN.  Early in 2018, a proposal was presented to the CentraCare Health Foundation in St. Cloud MN. The proposal was seeking a grant to fund the installation of 3 SaveStations containing AED units in a weather proof, monitored cabinet in the St. Cloud area. These units would be the first outdoor installation of a SaveStation in MN,  making AEDs available to the public 24/7 and 365 days/year. 

The grant was approved in 2 parts: CentraCare Health Foundation would provide an AED unit and CPR/AED training for a neighborhood group with the agreement that the neighborhood group would provide funding for the SaveStation unit.  The Pine Point neighborhood in Sartell, MN was the first pilot neighborhood and approximately $5,500 was raised in one month with a participation rate of 70% of the neighbors. The SaveStation unit was installed in the Pine Point neighborhood in December of 2018 and CPR/AED training was provided to the neighborhood group. The CentraCare Health Foundation ultimately decided to fund 25 more AED units using the same grant pilot program format and two additional units were installed in neighborhoods in the St. Cloud area. Advocates for Health was founded to continue to spread the SaveStation movement.
