Eric Paredes Save A Life Foundation
Our mission is to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) as the leading cause of death on school campuses. We advocate and support youth heart screenings and cardiac emergency response plans in schools with automated external defibrillators (AED) and CPR/AED trained staff anywhere youth congregate. Our foundation has tools and programs to help schools create a culture of preparedness as well as empower the next generation of life savers to respond to a cardiac emergency. Our programs align with the WSCC (Whole School/Community/Child) Model that promotes collaboration among stakeholders to enhance the well-being and achievement of our youth.
The foundation supports compliance with the Eric Paredes Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act, which is part of the 2019 Revised Heath Education Framework. The Act requires public, private and charter school sponsored sports activities in grades K-12 to adhere to new SCA prevention protocol that includes new coach training and athlete removal and return to play protocol, plus SCA information distribution and acknowledgement. Our foundation has created a free toolkit to help schools comply with the new law.
