Welcome to Central PA Heartsafe
Our mission is to create awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), and to make AED’s available to individuals who can provide life-saving services.
Central PA Heartsafe is based on the main goal of ending the unnecessary death from a SCA. Current statistics estimate about 400,000 SCA’s occur every year in the United States. Current survival rate is only 7-10%. With recognition of a SCA, early activation of 911, quality chest compression’s, and an AED’s within 2 minutes of the collapse; survival rates could average more than 70%.
With your help, we will link AED’s with an app that would allow persons equipped and trained to arrive in a timely manner. Most times the AED does not arrive soon enough.
