HEARTSafe

The Orono Police Department has teamed up with other local emergency services to make our communities HEARTSafe.

HEARTSafe Communities is a program designed to promote survival from sudden out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. It is a general concept focused upon strengthening the “chain of survival” as described by the American Heart Association. The program recognizes and stimulates efforts by individual communities to improve their system for preventing sudden cardiac arrest from becoming irreversible death. Learn more about HEARTSafe.

We can help with a crime prevention assessment (PDF) and provide recommendations on any improvements to your safety. We also provide other resources to aid in crime prevention.
