This Valentine’s Day, Protect the Heart of the Person you Love

There’s nothing worse than a broken heart… this Valentine’s Day, learn how to protect the hearts of your loved ones!

Statistics show that more than 200,000 Americans die of sudden cardiac arrest every year. Up to 50,000 of these deaths could have been prevented if someone had initiated the Cardiac Chain of Survival, and an automated external defibrillator (AED) had been available for immediate use at the time of the emergency.

The American Red Cross has a goal of one person in every home being trained in First Aid and CPR lifesaving skills, and all Americans being within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.

All American Red Cross Adult and Child CPR courses contain defibrillation skills and information. We invite you to learn more about the technology and training that could save the life of a co-worker, family member or a friend by contacting us at 831-462-2881, or emailing Lindsay at

You can also become a volunteer CPR/AED and First Aid instructor, and teach others how to save the lives of their loved ones. Use your skills to save the lives of countless individuals. Become and Instructor Today!
