EmPOWERED to Serve Health Lesson – Learn the Warning Signs of  Heart Attack |  About every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack. Some people having a heart attack wait before getting help. Some people feel it would be embarrassing to have a “false alarm.” Others are so afraid of having a heart attack that they tell themselves they aren’t having one.
 
This lesson helps empower communities by increasing awareness about heart attacks and steps to take in the event of a medical emergency. Participants learn that whatever the health emergency, don’t wait to call 9-1-1. In addition, this lesson encourages everyone to take steps to reduce their risk for heart disease.
