Over 300,000 people die each year from sudden cardiac arrest. Most cardiac arrests are due to an abnormal heart rhythm called Ventricular Fibrillation (VF). Left untreated, death follows within minutes of sudden cardiac arrest. Defibrillation is the only known therapy for VF. AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) are now being used in the public setting by non-medically trained citizens to save lives. For every minute that someone remains in VF their chance of survival decreases 10% - but with your help, we can make a difference! More

Safe Haven
In 2000, a new Florida law was passed that creates safe havens for parents of newborns who are considering the abandonment of their infants. The parent may bring the baby to one of several safe haven providers, including fire stations and hospitals. The parent may remain anonymous and will not be required to answer any questions.

The City of Miami Department of Fire-Rescue is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day to accept a newborn infant. Once in the possession of the fire department, the baby will be taken to a hospital, then Child Protective Services will be called to take over its care. More

Safe Place
Communities all share a concern about the safety and welfare of their youth and search for ways to keep their young people safe. The risk of abuse, neglect, or serious family problems jeopardize this safety and may result in running away from home. Project Safe Place gives youth in crisis a safer alternative. The program provides access to immediate help and safety to those young people between the ages of 10 and 17. More
