Award goes to the company for pioneering business in developing areas of Belfast.
STORMONT, BELFAST, Northern Ireland, October 11, 2010 - HeartSine Technologies, Inc. (www.heartsine.com) 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 (belfastmedia.com) 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
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
