Heart Safe youth sports program

If a sudden cardiac arrest would happen at a sporting event, would your local coaches and staff know how to properly respond? It is extremely important that youth sports programs have a plan in place so that coaches, referees, etc. can step in and help in the event of a cardiac emergency because during a sudden cardiac arrest, every second counts. Project ADAM will work with your youth sports program to put together a written action plan, ensure that coaches and staff are trained and ready to act in a cardiac emergency, confirm that AEDs are available and accessible, and conduct regular AED drills. Once youth sports program has taken all of the necessary steps to safeguard their teams, Project ADAM will designate them as Heart Safe.
