HeartSafe Program

DO YOU LIVE IN A HEARTSAFE COMMUNITY?

  • If someone in your community suffers a sudden cardiac arrest tomorrow, how likely is he or she to survive due to rapid access to life-saving treatment?
  • Now that all cities and towns in Massachusetts have enhanced 9-1-1, how many residents and public safety officials in your community can recognize the symptoms of cardiac arrest and know how to get help “on the way, right away”?
  • Who knows CPR in your community and is prepared to administer it when necessary? 
  • Where are automated external defibrillators (AEDs) located, and who has been trained to use them appropriately?

The answers to these questions could determine whether or not your community qualifies as a Massachusetts HeartSafe Community.
