Help us save more lives

We have one mission: to place more accessible AEDs in BC's public space.

CPR pairs with an AED can dramatically increase the chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest.

Empowering everyone to save lives

Up to 40,000 Canadians die each year from sudden cardiac arrest.

This campaign addresses the serious gap in our public emergency preparedness platform. “Start Me Up BC” is about making sure anyone can easily locate and use an AED.
