Joe M. Tison Middle School

Project ADAM

Project ADAM affiliates strive to assist schools and communities in establishing an emergency plan to place into action in the incidence of a sudden cardiac arrest. It’s not enough simply to have AEDs in the building. Lives are saved when schools are prepared not only with a documented plan, but also with a cardiac response team, in addition to being well trained and practiced on how to respond in the event of a cardiac emergency.

Project ADAM affiliates provide the foundation for schools to plan and develop their program, including planning templates, a reference manual and one-on-one consultation on how to help prevent sudden cardiac death in the school setting.

Project ADAM Heart Safe School designation is attained by schools upon successful implementation of a quality sudden cardiac arrest program of awareness, training and effective emergency response to promote a Heart Safe environment for students, visitors and staff as outlined within the Heart Safe School Checklist.
