In This Month's Krier
Killingworth is HEARTSafe The Department of Public Health started the HEARTSafe Communities Program in the spring of 2006 to foster community environments that improve the survival odds for people suffering sudden cardiac events, such as cardiac arrests or heart attacks.

A HEARTSafe Community promotes and supports the American Heart Association's 'Chain of Survival': Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training in the community; public access to defibrillation through strategic placement of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for use by trained community members; trained and equipped first responders and early advanced care.

The HEARTSafe Community program was developed in Massachusetts and now many states have started their own programs. It is the hope that this program, developed, piloted and implemented here in New England, will spread across the country. There is a clear need for this program. Only 13% of Connecticut adults know all the proper heart attack signs. These signs include recurring chest discomfort or pain, pain in one or both arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach; shortness of breath; and other symptoms that may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, or light-headedness.
