Heart Safe Communities
The Osseo Fire Department, in conjunction with the City of Osseo, North Memorial Ambulance Service, and AFA-AED, is undertaking a new initiative to make Osseo a "Heart Safe Community."
The program will help Osseo:
- "Educate citizens about SCA, CPR, AED & protection from Good Samaritan Laws"
- "Implement Public Access Defibrillation programs by placing AEDs in all businesses, schools and other public places where people assemble"
- "Train people how to use the AED, CPR (mainly chest compressions) to save more lives"
