THE STORY:

phil Reno wrote -

Troop 415 in Coon Rapids, MN is joining forces with Officer Bryan Platz and the Coon Rapids Police Department to help make Coon Rapids a Heart Safe Community.

Each year, 424,000 people in the U.S. (more than 1,000/day) experience out-of-hospital non-traumatic Sudden Cardiac Arrest, and nine out of 10 victims die. This is roughly equivalent to the number of people who die from Alzheimers’ disease, assault with firearms, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, HIV, house fires, motor vehicle accidents, prostate cancer and suicides combined!

The Heart Safe Coon Rapids program has two main goals: 1) to ensure that automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are easily accessible in the community; 2) to make sure the public is educated and trained to not only recognize the signs of sudden cardiac arrest, but also in the use of hands-only CPR and AEDs.

All to often our youth is bombarded by images glorifying the taking of life. With your donation we can help instill in these boys a greater sense of duty to the community and the importance of saving lives.

Thank you for your support.
