Old Lyme was designated a HEARTsafe community.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health recognized the shoreline community after more than 800 citizens were trained to provide CPR.
Old Lyme has also provided public access to defibrillation through strategic placement of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for use by public safety professionals and others.
