Our Mission

In collaboration with our Foundation our mission is to ensure that every life is protected in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital. 

Expanded Mission – Facing the Pandemic

Who

We are a Woman and Veteran owned company that promotes the value of community service, as well as community ability. The need for change is real, unfortunately many of us have been affected by heart disease, either directly, or indirectly through family and friends.

Why

Statistics haven’t changed in decades, we need a new way to improve the survivability of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). We are passionate about improving the low survival rates from Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Lives depend on how well a community can respond in an emergency.

What

HeartSafe Services empower communities to help themselves by providing Training, Community Access to AED units, simplifying the usage, storage, maintenance and management of the entire process.

Where

Whether it is a large organization, school, church, shopping mall, or a residential neighborhood, our goal is to establish Heart Safe Neighborhoods™.

We create systems that support communities.

How

We focus on THREE core services:

  • Training – Community Capability and Awareness
  • Life Saving Devices – AEDs and Cabinets
  • Effective Asset and Program Management – Maintaining CPR Training Currency and AED Lifecycle Management

Commitment

We are so committed to this cause that we have established a non-profit organization to engage the community at large, increase awareness, education, and raise funds to train people in CPR and AED use.

HeartSafe Neighborhood Foundation™ is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit charitable organization, HeartSafe Services™ contribute proceeds to enable this mission.

Everyone working at HeartSafe Neighborhood Foundation™ graciously  volunteer their time and effort for this cause.

Background

Our corporation has extensive experience, in distribution, healthcare,EMS, engineering and remote systems integration. Our board members include Medical Doctors, Engineering and Business leaders.

The Pandemic Transition - Expanding Our Mission

Prior to the Pandemic, our services were primarily focused on Health and Safety Training, medical device distribution, establishing Publicly Accessible AED (PAD) programs, along with the management of these programs. 

Our service’s extended to sales and distribution of environmental disinfection, health and safety products and services. 

HeartSafe Services had established a number of business relationships with suppliers and brokers supporting our Mission.

One of these partners was Heartfelt Projects, led by Holly Morrell. A company in the cardiac screening industry with over 20 years of experience evaluating kids and adults throughout the US. It seemed like a natural alignment, as we have a common interest of reducing the impact of heart disease and sudden cardiac arrest.

Through our business discussions,  we were introduced to Human Insights, Inc., a tech company led by Sahiqa Bennett based in Dubai.

Human Insights Inc. had established a unique application for accelerating the medical screening of Covid-19 cases by leveraging Artificial Intelligence.

Over the course of a few weeks, the three companies discovered that by combining our effort, contacts and resources we could create a greater positive impact to improve people’s lives.

Formation of the three company coalition has allowed this cooperative to contribute to the battle against the Pandemic by sourcing, and providing PPE, Quick Testing (Antigen), PCR Testing capabilities, while continuing to support our initial Mission!

“We have aligned our passions and resources to bring a fresh approach toward a common goal,” says HeartSafe Services founder and CEO Donna Detwiler. Pointing to the common thread in each of their very different histories. “Business is about making peoples’ lives better, and the degree to which we achieve this defines our success.
 
“The extreme circumstances helped form our partnership in a deeper way,” says Bennett. “No one alone can solve what is a huge problem. The different locations became a plus – every one of us has a strong network in various countries. Understanding the differences and strengths of each region is important. This allows faster solutions through trusted relationships on a large global scale. When women do things with passion and trust, they go all out.” 
 

“We have been delivering community screenings for over 20 years,” says Morrell. “We are in the business of saving lives and this seemed to be a perfect pivot for these unprecedented times. We all have to find ways to help. Now.”

The three CEOs have business ties in the US, the UK, the UAE, and beyond–and they’re using them to build a powerful network of hospitals, doctors, and researchers united to fight COVID-19.
