Take Steps Now to Save a Life
The life saves on NJ Transit and MBTA didn’t just happen. They occurred because those responsible for passenger and employee safety chose to be ready. They took proactive steps that turned unfortunate events into celebrations. They saw that transit systems serving thousands of people each day should meet the same standard of care as airports.
Virtually all transit systems are facing tough budget circumstances. Those whose lives were saved can thank leaders who made the deployment of AEDs a priority and found a way to make it work financially. MT
