Heart Safe Committee, Ramsey Lions, and Bystanders Recognized for Lifesaving Work

At the Council meeting on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 Mayor Strommen and the Ramsey City Council recognized the Heart Safe Ramsey Program, the Ramsey Lions and the bystanders who took action to save a Ramsey man’s life at the Outpost Bar and Grill in Ramsey on January 11.

Police Chief Jeff Katers highlighted the work of Heart Safe Champion Tim Hoffman and the Ramsey Lions for their donation of the automated external defibrillator (AED) that saved the life of Ramsey resident, Mike Stueve.  He also thanked bystanders Amy Miller and Jacob Lowe, for taking action to perform CPR and utilize the AED that night.  Chief Katers presented Amy, who was in attendance, with a Ramsey Heart Safe Life Saving Award.  Survivor Mike and his daughter Cami were also in attendance.

Active in Ramsey since 2015, the Ramsey Heart Safe program has trained more than 1,400 people in bystander CPR and located over 65 public use AEDs around our community.  The Ramsey Lions have purchased and donated a number of AEDs to the Ramsey Heart Safe Program, with proceeds from their charitable pull tab sales.  To learn more about Heart Safe Ramsey, visit our Heart Safe webpage.
