STORMONT, BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- HeartSine Technologies, Inc. was honored with the Belfast Ambassador Award at the sixth annual Belfast Business Top 50 event in Stormont, Belfast. The award was presented to the company by the Belfast Media Group for pioneering business in developing areas of Belfast, Ireland.
HeartSine CEO Greg Cash, who accepted the award at the Long Gallery in Stormont on behalf of HeartSine, said, "We are honored to be singled out for the Belfast Ambassador Award. HeartSine has a rich history of innovation and public awareness, especially in the area of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). We are proud of the work we've done in Northern Ireland, and all around the world."
Cash took the opportunity to share information about SCA and encouraged the attendees to consider starting a Public Access Defibrillator program in their respective organizations. SCA does not discriminate. It can happen anywhere, to anyone, at any time and accounts for an estimated 425,000 deaths in the United States each year, more than the total death rate for breast cancer, lung cancer, and HIV/AIDS combined. The annual mortality rate from SCA throughout Europe and North America exceeds one million. When a defibrillator is used within the first three to five minutes after the onset of SCA, the victim's chance of survival improves 40 to 75 percent.
The 50 companies recognized at the ceremony represented a diverse range of business leaders and entrepreneurs from the Belfast area. Each has worked tirelessly in their individual fields to progress and develop their businesses, despite the economic challenges.
HeartSine's European headquarters is located at 203 Airport Road West, Belfast, Northern Ireland BT3 9ED. For more information, contact +44 (0) 28 9093 9400, email@example.com.
