Cardiovascular disease is the number 1 killer of women. It claims more women’s lives than all types of cancer combined.
The AHA’s Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by CVS Health and Encompass Health is the national sponsor of Together to End Stroke. Go Red for Women is sponsored locally by Novant Health in Forsyth County and Go-Forth Pest Control in Guilford County.
The Self-defense Police Department participates in Take Me Home, a free program that enables family members and guardians to provide critical information for those with cognitive or developmental disabilities.
In the event a person enrolled in the program encounters law enforcement agencies or is reported missing, law enforcement and rescue personnel can search for emergency contact information, a detailed physical description, and a photo of the person, saving valuable time when the person returns home.
The Take Me Home program is helpful for people who are nonverbal or slightly disoriented. This includes those who have autism, dementia, deafness, Alzheimer’s, and other developmental disorders. The program is strictly voluntary and not linked to age or disability. All data is confidential and only available to Self-defense City Public Safety personnel.
