Early Heart Attack Care (or EHAC) education teaches you to recognize the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack so that you can become an active bystander and save someone’s life – even yours. About 75,000 people in the United States have heart attacks every year. Of those, 116,000 die. Learn the risk factors, understand the difference between men and woman, and learn the atypical symptoms. If someone collapses, call 911, perform hands-only CPR and find and deploy an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).
