Happy Holidays from all of us at In A Heartbeat! We hope you have the opportunity to spend this special time with your family, friends, and loved ones. We are busy finishing up some work this year and also preparing for a big year in 2024!
We donated 3 AEDS this past month in partnership with our friends from Microboard. We are working together on a campaign to ensure all schools in Connecticut have an AED within 3 minutes of all locations. When someone suffers sudden cardiac arrest, each minute that goes by without defibrillation drops their chances of survival 10%. If your child’s school does not have an AED within 3 minutes of all locations, please reach out to us! We can help. The AED recipients this past month were Maloney High School, Thomaston High School, and Terryville High School. We have now donated a total of 290 AEDS.
We hosted another cardiac screening event this past month at Sacred Heart Academy in Hamden, CT. We are busy planning our 2024 screening events. A quick, simple, painless electrocardiogram can help save lives!
