Snider Community Heart Watch

After multiple cases of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in our community, Fairfield Medical Center employees saw a call to action. They decided to develop a program to create a more heart safe community. The Snider Community Heart Watch is a task force sponsored by Fairfield Medical Center that includes more than 30 people, including physicians, nurses, community members and other FMC employees. The purpose and passion of this group is to increase awareness about SCA and to decrease deaths among people who experience SCA.

The group started a Public Access AED Purchasing Program to provide AEDs (automated external defibrillators) at a more affordable rate for organizations and individuals. In addition, the Community Heart Watch started an initiative to train more people in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). With the group's CPR Day in May 2012, they trained more than 2,400 people.

For more information, contact the Snider Community Heart Watch at (740) 689-6893.
