In this industry we’re fortunate to work with some incredible organizations, so today we shine a spotlight on a few of the organizations that are dedicated to making a profound impact on the lives of others: Parent Heart Watch, Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation and American Red Cross Training Services. These organizations have emerged as beacons of hope in the fight against Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), an epidemic that claims hundreds of thousands of lives each year. Through their unwavering commitment, tireless advocacy, and innovative initiatives, Parent Heart Watch, Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, and the American Red Cross have become a formidable force in combatting SCA, saving lives, and empowering communities.
Founded by four mothers who lost children to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the mission of Parent Heart Watch is to protect young hearts from Sudden Cardiac Arrest and preventable sudden cardiac death.
Parent Heart Watch focuses on:
- Awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and its true incidence in youth
- Early detection of heart conditions through recognition of warning signs and risk factors and
- Cardiac Chain of Survival training
- Widespread & proper placement of automated external defibrillators (AEDs)
- Cardiac emergency response planning anywhere youth congregate
- Mandatory & systematic registry on the incidence of SCA/SCD in youth
On the Parent Heart Watch website, you can learn more about Sudden Cardiac Arrest prevention, download resources, find a free or discounted heart screening, and more.
The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation is to “raise public awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and promote initiatives that help save lives through education, research and community.”
The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation lends many resources about Sudden Cardiac Arrest education, news, prevention and treatment. They provide community for those that need it and resources for those that want to help. So much of the information we use on a daily basis has come from the Sudden Cardiac Awareness Foundation and the work they are doing to combat the epidemic of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
The American Red Cross was founded in 1881 to serve those in need. It started aiding victims of disasters and wars, began aiding the armed forces and their families, and grew to blood donations, trainings and more.
The American Red Cross provides training for First Aid, CPR, AED, babysitting, lifeguarding, water safety, and more. Here at RescueStat, we are focused on workplace safety training, which includes CPR, AED, First Aid and Blood Borne Pathogens. We are an Authorized American Red Cross Training Center, so we take pride in following the ARC’s standard for training. If you receive your certification through us, you can be assured that you will receive a 2-year American Red Cross Certification.
Performing CPR immediately can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. Taking an American Red Cross training will teach you how to effectively perform CPR and apply an AED to aid a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
