Save More Lives!

Our mission is to save more lives by educating the public in CPR/AED use and the placement of automated external defibrillators in the public domain.

Our founder, Lynn Blake, a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) survivor, established Starting Hearts in 2010.  Blake was 27 years-old and had no previous history of cardiovascular disease when she collapsed in Vail on Valentine’s Day in 2007.  It was her good fortune that bystanders called 911 and started Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).  Within minutes, the Vail Fire Department and Eagle County Paramedic Services used an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to deliver three shocks to her chest.  Blake’s doctor explained she was one of the lucky few to survive SCA (roughly 8 percent), which strikes with little or no warning.  In the aftermath of this life-changing event, Blake founded Starting Hearts, whose purpose is to increase the survival rate of SCA victims through multiple initiatives, including but not limited to:  emergency response CPR and AED education, the strategic placement of AEDs in the public domain, location services for available AED's, and a reverse-911 notification program for "Citizen Heroes" as first responders.
