Stevens Point Fire Dept. & Portage Co. Ambulance Keeping the HEART Red for American Heart Month

The Stevens Point Fire Dept. & Portage Co. Ambulance will bring awareness to a heart-healthy lifestyle during American Heart Month by displaying a large heart illuminated with red bulbs on the Division St. side of Fire Station #1 at 1701 Franklin St.

For every heart attack or cardiac arrest recorded by the Stevens Point, Amherst, and Plover Fire Department in Portage County, one red bulb will be replaced with a black bulb. The goal is to improve heart health awareness in the Central Wisconsin area and to keep the HEART red. The heart will be on display until March 4.

Throughout February, the Stevens Point Fire Department will share videos and educational material promoting Hands-Only CPR, the Pulse Point phone app, and heart-healthy living.
