Sudden cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, at anytime, to anyone. And it’s almost always fatal. Cardiovascular events, including cardiac arrest, are the second-leading cause of death in Minnesota, responsible for almost 20% of deaths.
In 2015, about 50% of Minnesota’s heart disease deaths happened before arriving at a hospital, and many of those were caused by cardiac arrest. This is why the Minnesota Department of Health, the American Heart Association, the Minnesota Ambulance Association, the Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium, and others have partnered to promote Heart Safe Communities, an effort to prevent death from sudden cardiac arrest by increasing community and public awareness, placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) wherever people live, work and play, and by educating the public on how to administer CPR.
As of 2017, more than 1 million Minnesotans live or work in a Heart Safe Community.
Heart Safe Communities helps communities and organizations:
- educate community members about sudden cardiac arrest and improving heart health.
- train people how to use AEDs and perform CPR.
