In this episode, I speak with Deputy Brandon Griffith from Griffith Blue Heart Nonprofit. Brandon is a Pinal County police officer that suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, causing him to die for about 16 minutes. He was saved through the work of his wife (perfusionist), fellow police officer, and FD/EMS. Brandon tells his story and talks about the importance of having an AED (automated external defibrillator) for first responders. It is vital to life saving for our communities and our fellow first responders. Brandon’s close call moved him to start a non-profit in the name of this message called Griffith Blue Heart and you can find it at https://griffithblueheart.com Take a listen, I promise it will captivate you. I hope you enjoy.
