Hastings Heart Restart was created with the intention of increasing the survival rate of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) victims and preparing area residents to handle a situation where a SCA victim is unresponsive. In order for any group to be successful, there must be goals and measurable results.
What are the goals of Hastings Heart Restart?
The Steering Committee of Hastings Heart Restart has created two primary objectives which will be used to measure the group’s success:
1.) To have at least 10% of Hastings residents trained in CPR.
2.) To encourage businesses to have automated external defibrillators (AEDs) on site and to have AEDs available throughout our community
How does this save lives?
In order to actually save lives, there must be a strong community “Chain of Survival”. The actions that make up the chain of survival are: early access (Call 9-1-1), early administration of CPR, and early defibrillation with an AED. The techniques which make up the Chain of Survival are taught in our on-site presentations.
