The Kensington Fire Protection District has taken the lead for the Kensington community to be designated a HeartSafe Community. At KFPD's June 2012 meeting, Supervisor John Gioia and County EMS Director, Pat Frost presented the Board of Directors and Chief Maples with official HeartSafe Community designation. A HeartSafe Community is one where all elements of the Chain of Survival are in place. It is a community that educates citizens to improve heart health, places AEDS in businesses, schools and other locations the public gathers, and trains people in CPR and AED use. Congratulations to the entire Kensington community!
