2014 Bomberos Calendar Funds Support CPR Training

April 14, 2014

The 2014 Heroes calendar, which featured two dozen Puerto Vallarta fire fighters and lifeguards, generated over $200,000 pesos - about $20,000 USD - to support local community programs.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - With the support of the two dozen local fire fighters and lifeguards who posed for the limited edition 2014 Heroes Calendar, fundraiser organizers presented Puerto Vallarta Civil Protection and Fire Director, Sergio Ramirez Lopez, with a check for $200,000 pesos last February.

These funds, generated from the sold-out calendar's sales, were earmarked for ongoing community education and first-responder training in all areas of emergency services, including fire and lifesaving education, emergency rescue and incident management, and many other valuable life-saving programs.

As the world leader in CPR, first aid and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC) training and education, the American Heart Association offers a variety of options for emergency responders and the general public to learn lifesaving skills.

An estimated 20 million people died from heart disease in 2013. And, since, over 80% of heart disease related deaths take place in low- and middle-income countries, a portion of the funds raised from the 2014 calendar sales will support accredited professional training as well as training in outlying areas and for local businesses.

As the community felt a strong need to say, "Thank You!" event organizers and sponsors were recognized last week at a special ceremony coordinated by Puerto Vallarta Mayor, Ramón Guerrero, and Civil Protection Director, Sergio Ramírez López.

Fondos del Calendario de Bomberos para Apoyo de Entrenamiento de RCP

Como líder mundial en RCP, primeros auxilios y atención cardiovascular de emergencia de formación y educación (ECC), la Asociación Americana del Corazón ofrece una variedad de opciones para los servicios de emergencia y al público en general para aprender habilidades que salvan vidas.

Una parte de los fondos recaudados de las ventas del calendario Puerto Vallarta Héroes 2014 apoyará la formación profesional acreditada, así como la formación en las zonas periféricas y de las empresas locales. Se estima que 20 millones de personas murieron a causa de enfermedades del corazón en 2013. Más de 80% de las muertes relacionadas con enfermedades del corazón, ocurren en países de bajos y medianos ingresos.

El calendario Héroes 2014 generó más de $ 200,000 pesos - alrededor de $20,000 USD - para apoyar los programas de la comunidad local. Los organizadores del evento y los patrocinadores fueron reconocidos en una ceremonia especial esta semana, coordinado por el alcalde Ramón Guerrero y Sergio Ramírez López de Protección Civil.
