OUR MISSION IS TO SAVE LIVES
We are a local group who is affiliated with the national Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association whose mission is to prevent the loss of life from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Members include SCA survivors, those who have lost loved ones to SCA, all ICD patients, heart patients, family members and Community Partners. Community Partners are people and organizations who support our mission; such as EMS, police and fire departments, city and school district personnel, medical device manufacturers and local health care professionals. We support all community activities with regard to heart health and saving lives through education and training and the placement of Automatic External Defibrillators in all public places. We are a Sudden Cardiac Arrest umbrella for community awareness in the Kansas and Missouri area. There are no fees and we welcome your participation.
