Milton a Heart Ready City

Courtesy City of Milton

The City of Milton has been recognized as a Heart Ready City by the American Heart Association. Milton is one of only a few Georgia cities that have received this designation. A "Heart Ready City" demonstrates leadership and commitment to saving lives through implementation of model emergency cardiovascular programs, according to the AHA. As part of being a Heart Ready City, Milton is required to teach CPR to 500 people annually. To achieve this goal, the Fire Department plans to hold a mass community CPR event. This allows the department to provide a free and potentially lifesaving class to all residents while retaining Heart Ready City status.

Check the City Web site for updates on this program.
