Leaders working to promote CPR awareness, make Baton Rouge a heart safe community
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Earlier this month Buffalo Bills Safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field after suffering a cardiac arrest that left him in critical condition.
Capital City officials have been meeting, even before then, to talk about how they can make Baton Rouge a heart-safe community.
They’re working to promote more CPR awareness and want the community to know they can learn CPR and how to use an AED.
East Baton Rouge Parish EMS is partnering with Our Lady of the Lake and several other organizations to kick off the Heart Safe Community Coalition.
Gray’s Army Foundation is offering hands-on CPR training. The organization is striving to prevent sudden cardiac arrest in youth. You can learn more about them here.
