Ben Wellons of E-Med healthcare is launching a "Likes for Life" campaign.

His medical company is focused on giving back to the community - especially schools.

”It's critical to have an AED on site and readily available,” Wellons said. “The time frame is 3 to 5 minutes or less from when a person goes into cardiac arrest so having a device on site and at the scene is critical. It's a matter of life or death.

So right now, he's giving away at least three free automated external defibrillators" to local schools.

All you have to do is "like" the company's Facebook page.

Despite a state mandate that requires at least one AED be at all schools, Wellons says the demand for more - especially in school gyms and practice fields - is still a top priority.
