Village of Southampton Heartsafe Community
Several years ago, several members of the SVVA decided to take steps forward to establish the Village of Southampton as a Heartsafe Community. Our long term plan includes early recognition of cardiac arrest, widespread CPR training, and public access defibrillation. While short term solutions provide early and quick access to emergency medical care, surviving sudden cardiac arrest depends on early CPR. Our long term goals are outlined below. As members of the community and visitors to others, you have the ability to play a major part in the chain of survival.
