An Automated External Defibrillator for the Home
Is there a loved one in your life with heart health concerns?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen at any age, at any time and without any warning. First Aid Canada is pleased to provide and recommend the Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator, which is easy to operate and notifies you when maintenance is needed.
