In 2013 SVAA was designated a HEARTSafe Community by the Connecticut Department of Public Health. The goal of this program is to improve the chances of survival for anyone suffering a sudden cardiac arrest by maximizing the number of non-medical people trained in CPR and documenting the location of AEDs in public places.
