DON'T WAIT FOR THE HELP, BE THE HELP!
Welcome to Heart Safe-Ramsey. This is a program that is designed to teach the community Bystander CPR and how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Our mission is to increase survival rates of SCA (sudden cardiac arrest) by educating the public in quality CPR and proper use of an AED. We also want to help ensure proper coverage of public access defibrillators in our city.
The national average of SCA survivors is 5% mainly because bystanders are afraid to act or
In Coon Rapids, MN the survival rate is approximately 22% due to the Heart Safe program there, which has already saved lives.
If Bystander CPR is given to a victim of a SCA within the first 2 minutes, the chance of survival increases to 85%!
RAMSEY OFFICIALLY BECOMES A MINNESOTA HEART SAFE COMMUNITY
The City of Ramsey is proud to announce that it has officially met all criteria required to become a Minnesota Heart Safe Community. An award presentation was held at the Ramsey City Council Meeting on Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 to recognize this community achievement.
The Heart Safe- Ramsey program has set a goal of training 1,400 citizens, about 5% of Ramsey's population, in bystander CPR and proper AED use. 1,386 citizens have been trained so far, but we need your help to reach that goal!
If you have been trained in CPR since September of 2014, your name can be added to the City's total. Please send your name and the type of training you received to email@example.com or by mail to City of Ramsey, Attn: Nichole Wenberg, 7550 Sunwood Drive NW, Ramsey, MN 55303.
If you have not yet been trained, please consider joining in one of our FREE Bystander CPR and AED Training Sessions.

Note: This is not a recertification class. It is intended to teach bystander CPR and AED use. You are protected by the Good Samaritan Law regardless of certification status. If you witness a Sudden Cardiac Arrest - Don't Wait for the Help, Be the Help!
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, Sudden cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. And it's almost always fatal. Cardiovascular events, including cardiac arrest, are the second-leading cause of death in Minnesota, responsible for almost 20% of deaths.
In Minnesota in 2010, more than 35% of deaths due to heart disease happened prior to arriving at the hospital, and many of those were due to cardiac arrest. This is why the Minnesota Department of Health, the American Heart Association, the Minnesota Ambulance Association, the Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium, and others have partnered to promote Heart Safe Communities, an effort to prevent death from sudden cardiac arrest by increasing community and public awareness, placing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) wherever people live, work and play, and by educating the public on how to administer CPR.
