Valentine’s Day isn’t the only focus that involves hearts in February. On December 30, 1963, President Lyndon B. Johnson officially declared February as American Heart Month. At that time, more than half of the total deaths in the US were caused by cardiovascular disease.
Take some time to evaluate your heart health. Smart diets, regular exercise, and stress-reducing activities can greatly help improve your cardiac health and keep that pump working for years to come.

Trio Safety and Stop Heart Attack would be delighted if the CPR we teach and the AEDs we distribute would never again need to be used to save lives. Until we reach the point of eliminating cardiac arrest events, be sure to keep current your CPR training certification and have ready an AED to respond when seconds count. The life you save may be your family.
