The Petaluma Health Care District launched a HeartSafe Community Program in collaboration with local police and fire, EMS, Petaluma Valley Hospital and American Heart Association in 2013. The purpose of the Program is to promote CPR and AED training, implement a public-access defibrillation network (install AEDs in public locations) throughout our community, and provide ongoing education and AED maintenance support. Sudden Cardiac Arrests (SCA) can happen anywhere, at any time, at any age. The ultimate goal of the Program is to strengthen our community's response to medical emergencies. The HeartSafe Community Program is managed by HEALTHQUEST, a service of the Petaluma Health Care District. To learn more about HEALTHQUEST CPR classes or HeartSafe Community click here.
