Alexandria, VA – September 27, 2012 – The Risk Management Department of the Club Managers Association of America is pleased to announce its official association with CardioReady as a preferred provider of Cardiac Emergency Response Program Services. CardioReady will work with CMAA member-managed clubs to help them to combat Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) at their facilities with the patented CardioReady Certification solution.
“SCA is the leading cause of death in the United States, and recognizing both the human benefits as well as CMAA’s commitment to assisting its members in managing the risks that they confront, CMAA wishes to provide its member-managed clubs with a best-in-class solution,” commented CMAA’s Director of Risk Management, Jeff Magoon. “CardioReady’s turn-key and user-friendly approach will be a great asset to our members as they seek to protect the lives of their members while using the club.”
“CardioReady is honored to have the opportunity to assist CMAA and the industry-leading professionals that comprise its membership. Effective cardiac emergency response programs can elevate survival rates from the national average of less than 8% to more than 70%. Automated external defibrillators are now very affordable and easy to use, and Good Samaritan legislation exists in each of the 50 States to protect lay rescuers. As such, there are no longer any impediments to clubs taking the steps required to defeat the leading cause of death in the United States and protect the lives of those who visit their sites,” commented John Ehinger, CEO of CardioReady.
