We're proud of our accomplishments

One of six college campuses to be HEARTSafe certified

In 2014 Binghamton University (Harpur's Ferry Student Volunteer Ambulance Service) was named a HEARTSafe CAMPUS by the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation (NCEMSF). The HEARTSafe CAMPUS designation was developed to encourage and promote community awareness of the potential for saving lives with effective CPR and early defibrillation. NCEMSF, with support from the HEARTSafe COMMUNITIES, the American Heart Association, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association, developed the award program for colleges and universities with a specific focus on the awareness, training and safety of cardiac arrest emergencies.

HEARTSafe Campuses promote and support:

  • Rapid Response by CPR and AEDTrained First Responders
  • Rapid Public Access to Defibrillation
  • Early Access to Advanced Care
  • Public CPR and AED Training for the Community
  • Engagement in Preventative Cardiovascular Healthcare Activities
