South Dakota Cardiac Ready Community is working to expand this designation.

  • Early access to emergency care
  • Early CPR
  • Early defibrillation
  • Early advance medical care
  • Post-cardiac arrest care

Eide provides support and assistance for communities seeking designation. “We are working to revise the criteria to make it easier for smaller South Dakota communities. The programs help them evaluate their readiness for a cardiac event, including planning, development, CPR and AED training and AED location identification. It is important for the communities in SD to be prepared to use the “chain of survival” to manage a cardiac event.”
