AED123 places 64 AEDs at the 2019 World Scout Jamboree

AEDs covered a campground that was effectively, for 10 days, the largest city in West Virginia

SUMMIT BECHTEL RESERVE, WEST VIRGINIA -- The World Scout Jamboree was held July 22 through August 1 at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.

With few exceptions, the World Jamboree has been held every 4 years since 1920, and this was just the second time a World Jamboree had taken place on U.S. soil.

The Boy Scouts of America were committed to creating a safe environment for the 50,000 plus participants at the event, and they called on AED123 for help placing AEDs across the campground.

AED123 is a Dallas based company dedicated to making AEDs easy for all manner of businesses and organizations. AED123's founder and CEO, Bobby Wehmeyer, is an Eagle Scout who enjoys the opportunity to serve fellow Scouts across the country.

AED123 also provides AEDs to BSA councils, camps and Scouts. Please request a consultation with AED123 if you are interested in exploring placement of AEDs. BSA councils and units can also click here to purchase AEDs.
