4 Automated External Defibrillator Program On Tuesday, August, 28, 2007, Pittsburgh United for Life Saving Emergencies (PULSE) set a new world record for the largest Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training session in one day at one venue. PULSE is a program operated by St. Margaret Foundation and UPMC St. Margaret hospital. The record is considered unofficial until sanctioned by the Guinness Book of World Records, which is now in process. PULSE trained 1,780 Pittsburgh Public School employees. The achievement broke the record formerly held by the Glendale Fire Department and Southwest EMS in Glendale Arizona, set July 29, 2006, at Cardinals Stadium where 1,039 individuals received training. 100 donated units are being installed in Pittsburgh schools and athletic facilities. The fair market value of the program is $400,000.
