On April 9 at the School Board meeting, the Save Hearts in Arizona Registry and Education (SHARE) program awarded Camp Verde High School, Middle School, and Elementary School with the designation of being "HEART Safe."

SHARE is a program of the Bureau of EMS and Trauma System, which is a division of the Arizona Department of Health Services.

The HEART Safe designation is a two-year award. HEART Safe businesses and community groups have in place an action plan for responding to a cardiac arrest, making them safer places to work, visit, and worship.

The Camp Verde Schools are the Verde Valley's first recipients of the HEART Safe designation. The state's SHARE Education Coordinator Carol Gibbs was on hand to congratulate the schools and the Camp Verde Fire District for its work on the program.

With the leadership of Camp Verde's former school nurse, Nadia Applegate, and the support of Fire District personnel, all of the school's AED's have been registered in the SHARE Registry, a response plan for using the seven AEDs on the school's properties has been communicated, and staff and students have been trained in chest-compression only CPR/AED.

The SHARE Program recently announced there are now more than 1,000 survivors of cardiac arrest in Arizona since the program began in 2004. SHARE promotes a comprehensive, standardized system of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest care throughout the state encompassing all "links" in the "chain of survival" including bystander response, emergency medical dispatcher CPR instruction, Emergency Medical Services provider resuscitation, and standardized care at hospitals. SHARE also seeks to support survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by providing them with helpful resources.

Early CPR and use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can more than double a victim's chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.

To be recognized as HEART Safe, a community must have:

• A written plan for responding to a cardiac emergency

• Offer CPR/AED (hands-only or conventional CPR) training, and have trained at least 50 percent of staff

• Have an AED on site and registered with the SHARE Program, and maintained according to manufacturer's guidelines.

For more information or to register AED(s) and apply for the HEART Safe Recognition, go to www.azshare.gov.
