Why are some of the campaigns a different price?2019-07-03T05:13:12+00:00

The price of an AED device with maintenance fees remains constant but there are a few variables that can change the overall price of the device. The city and state taxes along with storage options (backpack, outdoor cabinet and indoor cabinet) will change depending on where the device is going and how it will be stored.

Why did you start this initiative?2019-07-03T05:07:21+00:00
