If your team or league doesn’t have an AED yet, I challenge you to read the story linked below and not be instantly motivated to get one.

Written by columnist Gregg Doyel of IndyStar.com, the story recounts how an AED (automated external defibrillator) saved the life of Roncalli High School assistant coach Vinny Romano, who collapsed during a lacrosse game last month.

Romano, 47, suffered a heart attack and as he lay on the field, his heart had stopped. If not for the immediate use of a portable AED by the team’s athletic trainer, Sherry Manzelli, he may not have survived.  Some are calling it a miracle.

Don’t let the story’s happy ending distract you from the importance of the message. The AED unit was critical in helping to save Romano’s life. It could also be the difference, potentially, between life and death at thousands of fields and games across the country. Is your program prepared to save a life?
