The Need for AEDs

Last month, I posted an article about a man who died from cardiac arrest while riding a commuter train to Chicago. Like many people, I asked the question why Automated External Defibrillators - required on airplanes by federal law - aren't present on most trains. The Chicago Tribune is keeping attention on the issue, writing how Boston became the first major commuter line to install the life-saving devices on all its trains.

It's time for the rest of the country to follow their lead.

My wife wants to bring one of those with us when we retire in the RV. I think its a hell of an idea.
