The majority of CPR/CCR training is sterile and unrealistic to actual field conditions for public servants. Griffith Blue Heart has created an unmatched training program focused on interweaving didactic and tactile learning phases with reality-based curriculum, positive stress inoculation scenarios, and up to date science and research to ensure law enforcement is provided the highest quality cardio-cerebral resuscitation training available to incorporate in the field.
Griffith Blue Heart is the industry expert on police cardiac response. Our team has written templates and sample policies with multiple options to be adapted for agencies of varying sizes. Contact our team for assistance with policy writing to best guide your first responders and limit liability.
Uncontrolled bleeding contributes to cardiac arrest making it vital to pair Stop the Bleed training with Cardio-Cerebral Resuscitation training. Hypovolemia (major blood loss) causes severe shock to your body leading to cardiac arrest. Griffith Blue Heart instructors are certified by the American College of Surgeons to teach emergency bleeding control to save lives.
Rolling out a new program and deploying AEDS into the field can be tricky especially when agencies can’t fully outfit their officers all at once. Griffith Blue Heart can provide practical and field-based solutions for deploying your program to best fit your agencies needs.
As public servants we always strive to save lives and impact our communities with new programs and equipment however, most agencies don’t have funds just sitting around for a new AED program. Griffith Blue Heart offers innovative routes and options for obtaining funds to implement a program custom for your agency. Please reach out to our team to learn more.
Griffith Blue Heart has carefully conducted research, cost analysis comparisons, equipment testing, and budgeting to ensure programs maintain long term sustainability and meet law enforcement field needs to save as many lives as possible. Our team can guide your agency through physician oversight, equipment selection, battery and pad replacement recommendations, registration, tracking, research, inventory, extended warranties, inspections, and AED coordinator responsibilities.
Through front line field experience and first-hand survival, Griffith Blue Heart understands every second counts in cardiac emergencies. Dispatchers are the lifeline and a vital component of the chain of survival. It is imperative dispatch protocols are up to date and give the people we serve the best chances of survival in cardiac emergencies.

Let Griffith Blue Heart help you with a recognition event and get survivors together with those that saved them to celebrate this rare occurrence. Griffith Blue Heart offers custom awards for law enforcement and their family members. Griffith Blue Heart is one of the only organizations that makes cardiac arrest awards specifically for law enforcement. Less than 1-5% of people that go into sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital setting will survive. Almost 1000 Americans die daily from cardiac arrest and it is the number 1 cause of death in the United States. It is so important to take the time to recognize those few that survive as well as the heroic actions of those that stepped up against the odds and saved a cardiac arrest patient.
Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States and the only tools currently available to combat cardiac arrest are CCR/CPR and a shock delivered from a defibrillator. Approximately half a million Americans experience cardiac arrest each year in this great country. The utilization of CCR/CPR and AEDs significantly increases the chances of survival. The Griffith Blue Heart team have done CCR/CPR and utilized AEDs countless times throughout their lives and can advocate based off first-hand experience both as a survivor and savers.
After someone experiences cardiac arrest, there are so many questions, feelings, and emotions that the survivor, their loved ones, co-workers, and friends are left with. It can be extremely challenging to find answers if any can be found, about their incident. Being able to speak with other survivors and their loved ones often brings comfort and insight to those new to cardiac arrest. The Griffith Blue Heart Team can guide, listen, and mentor others in the cardiac community by putting them in touch with fellow survivors and survivor organizations, education groups, and giving them the opportunity to help give back.
I have had the pleasure of working with him in his role as one of the founding members of the Arizona Cardiac Arrest Survivors group and I have seen him in action as a speaker and advocate.

I am so impressed with how Brandon has chosen to live his second chance at life. His life before his sudden cardiac arrest was noteworthy, too. I met Brandon at the police department and instantly noticed his strong desire to help others. He was very passionate about connecting with people and sharing his life experiences with them. While some may think experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest at the young age of 26 to be a misfortune, Brandon took it as a blessing. Not one to back down from a challenge, he overcame several hurdles to return to full status as a police officer, patrolling without limitation.
However, that is only the start of his story. When he isn't on patrol, Brandon is busy trying to share his story of survival. His personal experience and his ability to relate to diverse audiences helps spread the message of the importance of learning CPR. He is active in the community by talking to children's groups, speaking at EMS conferences, recognizing other law enforcement officers for their heroic efforts performing CPR, collaborating with other survivors to improve other peoples' chances of survival, sharing his story with the Arizona State Legislature and encouraging them to pass legislation requiring CPR instruction in high schools, pursuing funding for CPR education and obtaining donations for AEDs for the community.
I have been a CPR instructor for over 20 years and I speak from education, science and professional experience. Brandon teaches just as effectively because of his personal experience with life, death and the immediate CPR provided to him when he collapsed, that has made all the difference with his survival without deficits.

This letter addresses my sincere respect and admiration for the actions of selfless dedication that Brandon Griffith has demonstrated in his efforts for increasing global survival from the devastating facts of sudden cardiac arrest death.
In the short time that I have come to know and collaborate with Brandon, in my twenty years’ experience in the fight against cardiac arrest, I have never been more inspired or hopeful in achieving some strong, long-desired outcomes to affect the impact that law enforcement has in our communities in relation to cardiac arrest survival.
Brandon’s calm, caring and professional demeanor encompasses a vibrant energy and passion that is infectious to anyone who has interest in our common mission. When selecting young professionals for a collaborative universal committee to help make a change in cardiac arrest outcomes, by enticing other young professionals to join our efforts, Brandon was the first on my list.
Brandon has already begun helping me with new insights here in San Diego County that I hope will affect our law enforcement's protocols for cardiac arrest response.
It is with great reverence and a joyful heart that I write this letter. My life, in its sixty years of experience, is grateful to have Brandon as an associate and friend to travel this pathway of purpose.
