Tell Us Your Heartsaver Hero Story!
Today, many Americans feel helpless to act during an emergency because they do not know how to administer CPR or they are afraid of hurting the victim. We want to recognize heroes such as bystanders, colleagues, nurses, and EMS providers who have stepped in to save a life. Thank you for performing the heroic act of CPR, a critical link in our chain of survival. You have not only helped save a life within your community, but you are also partnering with the American Heart Association to improve the survival rate of citizens who receive CPR from a bystander.
Please fill out the Heartsaver Hero form so that the rescuer can be recognized and the AHA can keep a record of survivor stories and CPR use. Allow 7-10 business days for processing and certificates will be mailed to the address provided. Please contact HeartsaverHero@heart.org with questions.
We receive requests to use survivor stories for AHA marketing purposes, as well as from the media, who may need a story involving someone of a certain gender, race, or age range. AHA uses this information for future/potential marketing purposes. We are also seeking stories of nurses and EMS providers who can we recognize during Nurses Week and EMS Week. You will be contacted if we use your story.
We are happy to honor anyone who has assisted in any part of our chain of survival, regardless of training or outcome. Learn more about Heartsaver Heroes.
