Heart Rescue Partner - North Dakota

North Dakota

The North Dakota Cardiac Ready Community program is designed to promote survival from a cardiac event, such as sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) which occurs outside of the hospital setting. The goal is to have a community prepared to respond and assist if an individual has a cardiac event. The Cardiac Ready Community program promotes the American Heart Association Chain of Survival, which can improve the chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke, and other emergencies.
