“The 4-Minute City is a program that we’re implementing in five communities across the country, and the ultimate goal is to improve survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrest, which is one of the leading killers across the country,” said Sameer Jafri, President of Avive Solutions Inc. Jackson will be one of the five cities in the nation involved in this program. Avive Solutions has partnered with a local nonprofit, Friends of Heart, to create and disperse next generation AEDs. “We wanted it to be a coordinated approach, where we specifically placed these devices so that we can reduce response times versus AEDs just being out there in the community today,” Jafri said.
