Why Us

Medically Educated, Morally Driven.

If you’re shopping around for an automated external defibrillator (AED), it’s likely because you understand the danger of not having one on hand. Schools, shopping malls, concert venues, grocery stores, libraries—you see AEDs everywhere these days. That’s because sudden cardiac arrest is just that: sudden. Sudden cardiac arrest can be triggered by a wide variety of causes. It’s unpredictable and must be addressed quickly, so it’s very important that your facility has one on hand. It is truly a matter of life and death.

When it comes to something as serious as cardiac arrest or CPR training, don’t take any chances. By contacting KMS Medical, you can be sure that you are getting the best device that will be reliable when you need it. Some big-box distributors don’t offer a personal touch, but KMS Medical is unique in that its founder, Kevin Smith, doesn’t just talk the talk. He walks the walk—and has firsthand experience using AEDs.

Meet Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith was born and raised in Rochester, New York, and that’s where he resides to this day. With nearly 2 decades’ experience as a nurse, he has also worked as an EMT and is an active volunteer firefighter. He is also a member of the National Ski Patrol—it’s safe to say that Kevin has lived his life taking care of others. He summarizes the philosophy of KMS Medical succinctly: “KMS Medical is medically educated and morally driven.”

During Kevin’s time as a nurse, EMT, and volunteer firefighter, he has seen lives saved thanks to an AED. Unfortunately, he has also seen lives lost because there wasn’t an AED close by. The National Safety Council estimates that quick access to an AED could increase survival odds by as much as 40% for people who experience sudden cardiac arrest. Kevin knows this statistic offhand and takes it very seriously, because sudden cardiac arrest is serious and unpredictable. He considers it his mission to help make AEDs more accessible and found in more public places.

When asked about what he enjoys about his job, Kevin said…

I truly enjoy meeting with customers and talking with them about their need for AED equipment and supplies. I also take CPR/AED training seriously, and know that training people on how to use AEDs is just as important as having them. Customer service is my number one priority, and I will do whatever it takes to keep my clients happy before, during and after the sale.

Kevin Smith, KMS Medical Owner

Kevin’s stance on customer service is that once a person is a KMS Medical customer, they are a customer for the life of the device.

We can also help customers who know that they need an AED but the price tag is stressing them out. Did you know that grant money for AED support goes unclaimed each year? Our AED Grants Guide is a great starting place if you’re looking to get some additional funding. It has information on AED grants and can help you figure out whether you or your company qualify for support in the form of a grant. Many of our customers are people tasked with finding an affordable AED for their nonprofit organization. AED grants for churches and AED grants for nonprofits are excellent options if you need support.
