Holy Family Recognized as Project Adam Texas Heart Safe School

Holy Family Catholic School is pleased to announce that the school is now a recognized Project Adam Texas Heart Safe School! Holy Family is the first Project Adam heart safe school in the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth.

Project ADAM (Automated Defibrillators in Adam’s Memory) is a national non-profit, Cook Children’s Hospital-based community outreach program supporting implementation of written and practiced cardiac emergency response plans for sudden cardiac arrest in schools. It enhances our established emergency plan.

Recognition is achieved by a school after completing an extensive checklist which involves intensive training and practice drills for responding in the event of a sudden cardiac event. Completing the checklist and receiving recognition has been a goal of Holy Family’s during the school year. Holy Family currently has 10 certified CPR/ First Aid Trained Responders. All faculty and staff have annual awareness training on sudden cardiac arrest and our school’s Cardiac Emergency Response Plan.

Our cardiac response team members include Carrie Reeder, Jan Barker, Tracy Head, Mia Cook, Jo Ann Gomez, Meg Ruhter, Anna Brittain, Jodi Price, Daphne Gomez, Maureen Szostek, Linda Gangolf and Mirna Vasquez.
