Community Involvement

Heart Reviver Providers

According to the American Heart Association, more than 250,000 people in America die each year from sudden cardiac arrest. This alarming statistic prompted Cintas to take action to help address this national emergency. The question was, how?

In order to boost national efforts to address the emergency, Cintas created the Reviver Provider Police Grant Program to get lifesaving AED (automated external defibrillator) technology into the hands of trained officers, often the first to respond to a cardiac emergency. AEDs are computer-driven medical devices that deliver an electric shock through the chest wall to the heart.

As part of the program, Cintas awarded free AEDs and associated AED training from the American Heart Association to police departments each quarter during 2006 and 2007. By following up with each grant winner, Cintas was able to provide the American Heart Association with valuable data regarding AED deployment and effectiveness in rural and urban communities.

Waukegan, Illinois, Mayor Richard Hyde accepted the first grant award on behalf of the city’s police department. “I’d like to thank Cintas for their commitment to helping law enforcement and communities respond to cardiac emergencies with these lifesaving devices.”

Through the grant program, Cintas was able to make a lifesaving difference in communities around the country. In addition, the company is currently outfitting all of its distribution, manufacturing and production facilities across North America with AEDs.
