Arrhythmia Alliance (A-A) in partnership with the Bluffton Township Fire Department (BTFD) has transitioned into Phase II of equipping the Bluffton Community with the tools, resources and knowledge necessary to implement the chain of survival during a Sudden Cardiac Arrest event (SCA). To date, Arrhythmia Alliance has placed over a total of 70 Automated External Defibullators (AED's) within the Bluffton Community. The overall scope of the #BlufftonHeartsMatter Campaign includes the placing of publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AED)s and exterior cabinets within the incorporated and un-incorporated areas of Bluffton.
“The Town of Bluffton, Bluffton Police Department, and Bluffton Township Fire Department are pleased to partner with the Arrhythmia Alliance to make Bluffton a HeartSafe community. The A-A Defibs Save Lives- Bluffton Hearts Matter campaign is dedicated to providing our community with the necessary education, life-saving skills, and equipment needed to save someone from sudden cardiac arrest. We are proud to have the opportunity in making our town a safe place to visit and live," says Marc Orlando, Town Manager.
In the United States, about 360,000 people experience out-of-hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and nine out of ten people will die as a result. CPR alone only provides a 9% chance of survival however with CPR and the use of an AED chances of survival increase more then five-fold to over 50%.
By making a gift today to the #BlufftonHeartsMatter Campaign you are demonstrating your firm commitment to the health and safety of your fellow Bluffton Community members and Bluffton visitors. Your support today can save the life of an SCA victim tomorrow!
