UConn Designated 'HEARTSafe' Campus

>>UConn has been officially named a “HEARTSafe Campus” – the first institution of higher education in the state of Connecticut to earn the designation. The “HEARTSafe” program, which is coordinated by the Connecticut Department of Public Health and its Office of Emergency Medical Services, in collaboration with the American Heart Association, recognizes communities, workplaces, and now campuses, that improve the chances for individuals to survive a sudden cardiac arrest. The number of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) and the amount of community members trained in CPR are key factors in determining the “HEARTSafe” designation.<<

>>There is now an AED within a three-minute round-trip walk from any spot on the Storrs and regional campuses, and at UConn Law. AEDs can be located by downloading and using an app called PulsePoint AED.<<

>>There are now about 135 new AEDS on the UConn campuses, including about 90 in Storrs. There are also 270 new medical supply kits, which include a tourniquet, wound dressing, and shears to stop bleeding during an emergency.<<

Wouldn't they have to get rid of the Bacon Mac & Cheese at the cafs in order to qualify?
