Loveland Designated as a "Heart Safe Community"
The McKee Medical Center Foundation has partnered with McKee Medical Center, the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado, Thompson Valley EMS, the Loveland Police Department, Loveland Fire Rescue Authority and the City of Loveland's emergency dispatch services department, to become a designated “Heart Safe City.”
The “Heart Safe Community” designation, sponsored by the American Heart Association, is a communitywide effort to educate citizens on the dangers of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Identifying symptoms, learning how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and using automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are major components of the “Heart Safe City” designation. To learn more about this project and how you can get involved, please visit the Heart Safe Community page on the Banner Health website.
