70% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home. Performing CPR immediately can double or triple the chance of survival.
The HeartSafe Home campaign urges Washtenaw and Livingston County members to develop a plan with their household members and practice regularly in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
Website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram launching soon!
Look out for #heartsafehome
Discussion about the new campaign
Meeting participants discussed their impressions of the campaign and how to best utilize the resources available and make valuable contributions.
There is excitement and an overall positive sentiment surrounding the campaign and new logo.
Lots of ideas about using various social media platforms to spread the message and to expand this beyond just the Washtenaw and Livingston counties
Success of this campaign will be measured by the level of engagement through social media and implementation of HeartSafe Home plans
Many community resources that can help spread the word, such as County Health Departments, local radio stations, schools, clinics, and libraries. Reaching out to larger organizations such as the American Heart Association and the Red Cross may also be helpful.
