HELP SAVE MORE LIVES WITH STARTING HEARTS

Starting Hearts is a nonprofit dedicated to saving the lives of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims through free CPR and DEFIB training and access programs.

A Night of Heroes

This annual recognition event was started by the Rotary Clubs of Eagle County after 9/11 to recognize our very own Public Safety Heroes, including emergency responders, medical professionals and community leaders.

This year is extra meaningful due to the extra demands and risk of COVID-19 and the life-threatening forest fires going on.

Starting Hearts is co-hosting with Rotary to shine a light on our First Responders and recognize them for the outstanding job they do.  The event will also be a fundraiser with proceeds going to Starting Hearts and the Eagle County Emergency Responders Fund.

We encourage all of Eagle County’s citizens and our safety agencies across the state to join us in our virtual celebration of these extraordinary individuals!

Covid-19 & Starting Hearts

Since our creation, Starting Hearts has been dedicated to teaching our communities how to save lives and protect those around us. While we usually do this through CPR and Defibrillator classes, the COVID-19 pandemic has led us to a new challenge – how do we help our neighbors when we can’t gather together?
Starting Hearts was founded on the ideal that citizens should look out for one another, and our dedication to this principle has never wavered. Whether you are an essential worker, staying isolated inside, or taking care of loved ones, we thank you for doing your part to keep this pandemic at bay.
The coronavirus has turned our usual routine upside down, motivating us to think outside the box and reimagine how we work. Although we can’t hold in-person classes, we are pleased to offer Blended Learning online classes with the American Red Cross, which you can find here:  https://www.callpushshock.life/classes/  We are even offering these classes at half price!
We can’t wait to see you again, but until then our message to you is simple: stay home, learn CPR and help us save more lives.  We will continue to update you as we return to our regular operations.  Thank you for your continued support.
