Join the Network of Heroes - Become a Neighbor Saver
In cooperation with PulsePoint, Starting Hearts, has created Neighbor Saver program for Eagle county that uses a mobile app to alert people of emergencies. Once you have the knowledge and skills to assist a victim using an DEFIB, you can become a citizen responder, and be alerted when someone in your area needs your help. Neighbor Saver alerts citizen rescuers through a community-wide SCA response system that coordinates 9-1-1 dispatch information, to alert nearby citizen responders when their help is needed. Simply follow the instructions below and you are on your way to becoming a Neighbor Saver! To receive CPR/DEFIB notifications and HELP SAVE LIVES in Eagle County:

What is 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.
