What Happened?

Mayor Jackson applied for and won a grant to make Savannah residentss safer. Savannah will get $35,000 worth of American Heart Association CPR Training Kits for the first 1,000 Volunteer Trainers who will take the free course and pledge to train at least five more people.

The American Heart Association and a nationwide coalition of mayors are collaborating on a program to arm thousands of people with lifesaving skills in Hands-Only CPR.
Five U.S. cities were each awarded up to 1,000 CPR Anytime kits. Volunteer CPR is a high-impact service strategy in which the mayor’s office, through partnerships with local medical professionals or emergency responders, trains volunteers to use the lifesaving Hands-Only CPR technique.

Why this is important to you:

Unless you carry an Automated External Defibrillator ("AED") around with you, the first thing a victim of a sudden cardiac arrest needs is the CPR that keeps the heart and brain alive until the AED gets there.

And what are the odds you will ever have or see a cardiac arrest? Each of us has a higher than one in ten chance of - at least once in our lifetime - seeing a family member, a friend, or an associate collapse right in front of our eyes. If you wait for the ambulance, the outlook is very bleak. If, instead, you call 911 and then start pumping that chest, the odds of survival go way up.

And why would you want to train five other people? Because when you learn CPR you aren't any safer - the people around you are safer. If you have a sudden cardiac arrest, you really want the person next to you to know how to recognize what's happening and what to do!
 
The training kit grant program is part of the American Heart Association’s national Hands-Only CPR campaign. Supported by a three-year, $4.5 million grant from the WellPoint Foundation, the campaign uses public service announcements, social media and a multi-state mobile training tour to teach the Hands-Only CPR method and contribute to the American Heart Association’s goal to double survival from cardiac arrest by 2020.
