Gold Level Heart Safe Community

About Heart Safe Community

 

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
