We are pleased and excited to announce that Lisbon Emergency as well as the Towns of Lisbon & Bowdoin have been upgraded to “Maine Heart Safe Community, Gold Level”. There is a very strong working partnership between Lisbon Emergency, Lisbon Police, Bowdoin Fire, and Lisbon Fire. When we are training for a sudden cardiac arrest and performing CPR all departments work as a team.
“Survival rates drop as much as 10% for every minute that goes by without intervention. Having access to AEDs and Hands-Only CPR training are especially crucial in Maine’s rural communities,” said Dr. Adam Putschoegl of the American Heart Association in Maine. “If you see a teen or adult collapse, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the Bee Gees’ disco classic “Stayin’ Alive.” Performing Hands-Only CPR at this beat can more than double a person’s chances of survival.”1
The criteria to be a Maine Heart Safe Community are:
Lisbon Emergency goals for the next three years are to increase the number of trained people in CPR/AED for the Towns of Lisbon and Bowdoin as well as increase the number of AED's in the Towns of Bowdoin and Lisbon.
You can help your family and community by learning CPR/AED use and know where the AED's are in your town!
