Approximately 350,000 Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year — more than lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and AIDS combined. The national SCA survival rate is less than 10%.  This does not have to be the case.

The Queen’s Heart Safe Program, in collaboration with the Via Foundation and several community organizations was developed to help increase the survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest in Napa County. By teaching CPR, providing discounted AEDs, and offering long-term program management solutions for businesses, organizations, and schools throughout the area. The Heart Safe Program will help to make Napa County heart safe place to live, visit, work, learn and play. To learn more about CPR or how to obtain an AED, please visit www.thequeen.org/heartsafe or call 800-284-0125.
