Children’s Museum Receives AEDs for Rescue and Education


The Fairfield Medical Alliance donated a Powerheart® AED G3 Plus and an AED G3 Trainer to the A Hands-On Adventure (AHA!) children’s museum located in Lancaster, Ohio. As part of an exhibit, the donation paired with a training device will show museum visitors how AEDs work and how easy they are to use. Additionally, the fully functioning unit will allow trained museum staff to respond quickly to sudden cardiac arrest victims.

AHA! Executive Director Kimberly Murray said the museum is grateful to the Fairfield Medical Alliance for giving them the equipment. “Now we feel prepared to serve our customers better, in case of an emergency, and also to teach children something new about heart health,” she said in a news release.

“We’re thrilled to know that a Powerheart G3 Plus AED is at the AHA! Children’s Museum along side the AED G3 Trainer, which does not dispense energy, is part of the healthy hearts program,” stated Troy Pflugner, Cardiac Science Senior AED Specialist.
