Dr. Barry Ramo, Medical Director of Project Heart Start, initiated legislation passed in 2016 to protect the use of AEDs under the NM Good Samaritan Law. Dr. Ramo wants to encourage the widespread placement of of these heart starting devices in schools, businesses, and other organizations.
Starting in January, 2020, Project Heart Start will begin reviewing applications to grant 10 AEDs per year to nonprofit organizations throughout the New Mexico communities. Support of this program is provided by the New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation and Lovelace Health System.
If you belong to a nonprofit organization that does not have at least one AED on site, please download and fill out the AED Grant Application below.
