Catholic Central: A MI HEARTSafe School

In October 2023, Detroit Catholic Central High School re-certified as a MI HEARTSafe School. The award program began in 2013 and helps keep student athletes safe by screening for sudden cardiac death of the young (SCDY). The condition occurs when a young, seemingly healthy person suddenly dies from cardiac arrest or an unknown incident not related to drugs, suicide, trauma, homicide or long-term illness.  Catholic Central has been a MI HEARTSafe School since 2016. 

According to the MI Genetics Resource Center, SCDY is usually hereditary and takes the lives of over 300 Michigan children and young adults between the ages of one and 39 each year. The HEARTSafe certification recognizes Catholic Central’s dedication to keeping its young students safe by identifying the signs of SCDY and taking preventative measures to prevent a cardiac emergency.  

To meet the requirements, a school must have a written emergency response plan in place, reviewed with staff at least once per year. The school must also have a cardiac emergency response team with current CPR and AED certifications, perform at least one cardiac emergency response drill per year, and have the ability to respond to emergencies both during and after school. The certification is good for three years.  

To honor the achievement, Catholic Central High School was invited to attend a ceremony on November 14th at 10 AM at the Michigan High School Athletic Association in East Lansing.
