The town of Swansea, Massachusetts, has been designated a HeartSafe Community last week due to their efforts to improve cardiac care and save lives due to heart failure and sudden cardiac arrest. By spreading thirty-one AEDs throughout the town of Swansea, its community will be best prepared to save a life when in need.

Swansea has a proven "chain of survival," according to the established guidelines of the American Heart Association. According to the guidelines, the four lifesaving links are:
  1. Early Access
  2. Early CPR
  3. Early Defibrillation
  4. Early Advance Care
You're in safe hands in Swansea, Massachusetts. Fantastic and progressive work to everyone at the Southeastern Massachusetts Emergency Management Services Council.
