Implementing a Heart Safe Community Site Program

Project ADAM affiliates strive to assist schools and communities in establishing a practiced plan to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest.

A Project ADAM Heart Safe Community Site has successfully implemented a quality sudden cardiac arrest program of awareness, training and effective emergency response to promote a safe environment for students, visitors and staff.

Assess Readiness

As an initial assessment of cardiac emergency preparedness for your site, complete the Heart Safe Community Site Checklist. Contact your local Project ADAM Program Coordinator for additional support.  If you do not have an affiliate program in your state, use this tool as an assessment and guide to implementing a Heart Safe Community Site.
