Celebrating ten years since the launch of the life-saving Automatic External Defibrillator Program in Baltimore, Frank Storch was on hand to address the gathering of over 120 participants.

“Thousands of lives each year would be saved if more defibrillators were placed throughout the country. We, as the Jewish nation, value life tremendously. The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Program shows achdus, unity, and our commitment to help all Jewish people, regardless of their affiliations,” Frank Storch commented.

Also on hand was one of the people who most benefited from having an AED immediately available. Steven Silverman spoke about how his life was saved by the AED that had been installed in his synagogue. He thanked those that instituted the program, as well as the people who knew how to use it.

“Project Ezra and Beth El saved my life along with the people who worked on me that morning (when he had suffered an SCA- Sudden Cardiac Arrest.) It is common nature not to dwell on those events on a daily basis, life gets in the way. But the program on Monday night refocused everyone’s attention on the need to make sure that proper training of personnel and maintenance of the equipment is given the highest priority,” Mr. Silverman said.
