Sudden Cardiac Arrest?
Do you know what to do when someone goes into
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
The Challenge: Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating and a electric shock is needed to restart the heart. If not, death will occur within minutes of someone having SCA. It is our nation’s leading cause of death affecting an estimated 325,000 Americans every year and more than 92% will not survive.
Starting Hearts Classes
Starting Hearts has two types of classes for members of the community, businesses and schools to sign up for, American Red Cross, American Heart Association, American Safety Health Institute Certification Classes and Starting Hearts own Call.Push.Shock™ class. Both in English And Spanish (when available).
