On Saturday, May 4th, 2019, Heart of the Game (HOTG) teamed up with Life Safety Solutions to donate two (2) brand new mobile Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to the Brevard Lacrosse Alliance so that the youth athletic organization never has to go another day on the field without the safety and protection these life-saving devices provide.
The Brevard Lacrosse Alliance was chosen as Heart of the Game’s next recipients of AEDs in part because of the work the Alliance, along with the Lacrosse association of sport safety and education “LASSE”, has done to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest among young athletes. The organization had been fundraising to purchase an AED after local lacrosse player Colin Seely collapsed on a Viera High School field while running laps during ROTC. The Board and the volunteers at the association figured Colin’s incident hit too close to home, and they wanted to make sure they were prepared should another child suddenly go into sudden cardiac arrest.

Congratulations to the Publix employees who acted quickly to save a life! This is a "feel good" story from a Publix in St. Petersburg, FL. In March, when a customer in the store became unresponsive, Publix employees rushed to his aid, calling 911, giving chest compressions, and using their store's AED.
The customer, who is doing very well, recently returned to Publix, grateful to all the employees and emergency responders who helped give this story a positive outcome.
Watch the News Channel 8 video for the full story, and recognition of those involved in this life-saving effort!
Life Safety Solutions is proud to partner with Publix to provide AED Management services.
Congratulations Heart of the Game!
Heart of the Game is a non-profit organization that provides free AEDs and training to youth sports programs throughout Florida. In August 2018, HOTG presented their very first AED. The AED was given to Adam Charles, mentor and leader of a mobile youth athletic training camp for inner city kids ages 8-18. HOTG gave away this first AED in partnership with Life Safety Solutions. LSS president and owner, Dave Magruder, attended the HOTG presentation at Lincoln Park at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, and enjoyed the basketball skills demonstration put on by the enthusiastic youth players. Of the presentation, Magruder said, "It's important to have an AED accessible during sports practices and games, but the reality is, it's not always financially feasible. HOTG is providing a "life-saving" service in supporting these organizations. I was proud to be a part of giving back to the community in partnership with Heart of the Game."
When available and used quickly, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and CPR help save lives, giving victims of sudden cardiac arrest the best chance for a positive outcome.
