The Plumas County Public Health Agency and the American Heart Association (AHA) aim to help the communities in Plumas County improve their cardiovascular health and increase the chances that anyone suffering a cardiovascular emergency will have the best possible chance for survival.
Through the HeartSafe Community program, Plumas County communities can implement programs to:
- Strengthen what the AHA has called the “Chain of Survival”
- Improve cardiovascular health
- Improve chances of survival from SCA (sudden cardiac arrest)
Individual communities in Plumas County which meet the established criteria (see application below) can apply to Plumas County Public Health Agency and become designated as a HEARTSafe Community. As of 2018, Quincy is the only community in Plumas County which is a HeartSafe Community. Care Flight Ground is the lead organization to oversee our HeartSafe efforts in Quincy.
