ZOLL Heroes For Life


The ZOLL Heroes For Life program has been designed to celebrate survivors of SCA as well as their heroes and EMS or anyone else that had the courage to step in and get involved in the save. 

Celebrating The Survivors

The Heroes For Life program allows sudden cardiac arrest survivors have the opportunity to pay it forward and potentially save more lives by donating a ZOLL AED Plus to a charity of their choice*. Donating a life-saving device helps to raise awareness of SCA and highlights the importance of having AEDs in the public locations. 

The program welcomes the opportunity of the local press getting involved to further highlight the need for more AEDs and will help the community in recognizing the survivor and their brave heroes. With the survivor's permission, they can be brought together with their heroes and be provided with the opportunity to thank them. 

Reporting A Save

Save stories can be reported by a rescuer or survivor. To report a save, head to https://heroesforlife.zoll.com and fill out the 'Share Your Story' form. You will be asked:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Location of SCA
  • Date of SCA
  • Briefly Share your SCA Story
  • Who was Involved in the Rescue
  • Best date/time for ZOLL to get in touch
  • Confirmation that a ZOLL AED was used during the rescue

After Confirmation Of The Save

After the save has been confirmed and the participants have been successfully identified, ZOLL will get in touch to present the relevant parties to present them with their recognition awards. Each party will receive:

  • Unexpected Heroes: Pin and certificate
  • Survivor: Pin, AED to donate to charity*
  • EMS/ First Responder: Coin or Pin, Certificate
  • End-User: Pin, Co-Branded Certificate with ZOLL and Distributor Logo, Letter


What if someone doesn't want to share their story?

No one is obligated to share their story, it is just an opportunity if they would like to participate

Can I still recognize the heroes?

Of course! Those who stepped in to help or the end-user who invested in the defibrillator can always be recognized.

Can the survivors still get a donation?

Survivors can only get an AED to donate if they are willing to share their story. It is a way to help educate others about the importance of CPR and having an AED.

What if we don't know who the EMS people are?

That's ok. You can recognize the people you do know were involved. The program is flexible and you can execute pieces of it independently of others.


*Please note: the donation of a ZOLL AED Plus is only possible if permission is granted to create a save story and market it.
