Pedernales Electric Coop has announced that American Med Supply will be its supplier for automatic external defibrillators (AEDs). American Med Supply has won the contract to supply 82 defibrillators to the States largest electric coop. PEC will also be training more than 800 employees in CPR and defibrillators use.

Sudden cardiac arrest, or SCD, is the most common cause of death in the United States. Approximately 340,000 deaths occur from sudden cardiac arrest every year. Having automatic external defibrillators on site can literally mean the difference between life and death.

C Allyn Cutts, Vice President of American Med Supply, states, “It’s our mission to make sure anyone in America is within four minutes of a defibrillator. They save lives. It’s just that simple.”

Pedernales Electric Coop (http://www.pec.coop) has been in operation since 1938. It’s located in Texas and is member-owned. It provides electricity to about 227,000 members throughout nine districts, and is the largest electric cooperative in the US.

American Med Supply has offices in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida and is one of the nation’s leading providers of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), AED Batteries, AED Pads and AED Cabinets. American Med Supply supplies many of the largest cities and municipalities, gas & electric companies, police forces, government branches, the State Department, US Embassies, Fortune 1000, small businesses, as well as hundreds of YMCA’s, and school districts across the nation with their emergency medical equipment.
