Starting Hearts Programs
Starting Hearts is founded on Empowerment. Every year in the US, EMS teams respond to nearly 360,000 Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) events. Less than 10% survive Sudden Cardiac Arrest when it strikes outside of a hospital. Every second is critical. By placing DEFIBs in accessible locations throughout communities, Starting Hearts is working to increase the chances of survival when the unexpected happens.
Our Non-Profit organization offers several programs focused on placing DEFIBs in accessible locations in Eagle County for the community to save lives. We also provide training and classes for members of the community to use these devices to save precious seconds before EMS arrives. Together we can make our community safer by increasing access to DEFIBs and making sure you know what to do in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Take the time to learn. You have nothing to lose, but so much to gain!
