Implementing a Heart Safe School
Project ADAM affiliate sites strive to assist schools and communities in establishing a practiced plan to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest. We provide the foundation for a school to develop and sustain their program, including planning templates, a reference manual and one-on-one consultation.
A Project ADAM Heart Safe School has successfully implemented a quality sudden cardiac arrest program of awareness, training and effective emergency response to promote a safe environment for students, visitors and staff as outlined within the Heart Safe School Checklist.
Heart Safe School Checklist
Work with your school leadership prior to starting this process. Background for School Administrators has helpful information to guide initial conversations.
Next, as an initial assessment of cardiac emergency preparedness, fill out one checklist per school and return to your Project ADAM Program Coordinator. If you do not have an affiliate program in your state, use this tool as an assessment and guide to implementing a Heart Safe School.
