YOU CAN SAVE A LIFE!
CPR and AED training can truly make a difference in someone’s life. Recognition of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, early activation of 9-1-1, bystander CPR and AED utilization can all dramatically impact a person’s chances of survival.
We offer the following training:
- HeartSafe Hands-Only CPR & AED training
- AHA Certified CPR
Contact the MED-ACT Community Education Specialist at (913) 715-1981 to set up a time for your group to learn.
Have you recently purchased an AED? PLEASE make sure to register the device, so your information will be available when someone calls 9-1-1! Go to: http://www.marc.org/Emergency-Services-9-1-1/MARCER/Activities/AED-Registry/AED-Registration-Form to fill out a simple form.
What is the Johnson County HeartSafe Foundation?
Started in 2014, the Johnson County HeartSafe Foundation promotes County-wide CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) education. It stresses awareness of the 911 system, recognition of signs and symptoms of a heart attack and cardiac arrest, as well as the need for early CPR and AED use. Utilization of Hands-Only CPR can make a difference in the outcomes of those affected by sudden cardiac arrest.
It is the goal of Johnson County HeartSafe to have schools incorporate CPR education for every student in at least one designated grade. We also encourage CPR education for all County employees.
Through partnerships with Fire Departments and Hospitals, as well as community members in the Johnson County area, the organization has helped reach over 45,000 citizens with Hands-Only CPR thus far.
