United Celebrates HeartSafe Community Designation

 

Over the past year United Ambulance Service has been actively working on their commitment to improving cardiovascular health and awareness in local communities. Examples of this commitment include: Community and healthcare provider CPR instruction, Blood Pressure Clinics, and various community education initiatives. As a result, United has recently been awarded Maine HeartSafe Communities recognition. This recognition is awarded from Maine EMS, Maine Cardiovascular Health Program, and the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

 

United has been recognized at the “Platinum” level which is the highest level that an Emergency Medical Service can obtain. This designation applies to our community partners, the cities and towns of: Auburn , Greene, Lewiston , Mechanic Falls , Minot , New Gloucester, and Sabattus.

 

United is extremely pleased with this designation as it signifies their organization's commitment to ensuring access to the highest quality of pre-hospital care as it relates to cardiovascular health. This designation would not have been possible without the commitment and continual organizational support from all the cities and towns that United provides transport services for.

 

Examples of this support include public safety access and training in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) and in the delivery of CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest.

 

Agencies included in the success of this designation include: Androscoggin Sheriff's Department, Auburn Fire Department, Auburn Police Department, Greene Fire & Rescue, Lewiston Fire Department, Lewiston Police Department, Mechanic Falls Fire Department, Mechanic Falls Police Department, Minot Fire and Rescue, New Gloucester Fire Department, Sabattus Fire Department, and the Sabattus Police Department. In addition, Central Maine Medical Center and St. Mary's Regional Medical Center are also included as participants in this HeartSafe Communities recognition.

 

Over the past few weeks United has been presenting HeartSafe Community certificates and road signs to the communities receiving this designation. For additional information regarding the HeartSafe Community program, please visit: www.healthymainepartnerships.org.
