RIVERSIDE PROJECT HEART
RMCCF and the Riverside Fire Department are partnering to bring a new, lifesaving technology to Riverside, PulsePoint allows Emergency Communications Center staff to alert registered responders of person in need of CPR in their vicinity and inform callers of nearby lifesaving devices, such as an AED. Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) telecommunicators are a critical link in the cardiac arrest chain of survival. RMCCF has committed to be the sole funding source of PulsePoint for the initial three-year agreement to help save the lives of residents within the City of Riverside. To increase the number of CPR-certified, PulsePoint responders, RMCCF’s American Heart Association-certified Instructors are hosting the HeartSaver CPR/AED Courses for the community. Groups may participate in the extensive 4-hour HeartSaver Course, which includes Adult, Child, and Infant interventions and AHA certification, or the brief HeartSaver Introductory Course, which covers Adult intervention only. Hands-only CPR classes will be held at Educational Events throughout the year. Various CPR offerings will be given free of charge in the vulnerable neighborhoods within the City of Riverside. RMCCF is also dedicated to raising funds to install 100 AEDs per year in our community so that this valuable resource is available in all communities throughut Riverside.
