JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A group of Region 8 first responders were trained today on how to protect you from America's number one killer... heart attacks

Jonesboro police, firefighters and other emergency personnel received training on how to spot the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.

"Police officers are out in the field and have encounters with people and are first responders and are first on the scene on a lot of things," said Sgt. Lyle Waterworth, Jonesboro Police Department.

If you've never experienced a heart attack, don't relax just yet. In 2011, an estimated 785,000 Americans had a first time heart attack.

Signs of a possible heart attack are uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in your chest, and pain or discomfort in one or both of your arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.

Also, shortness of breath, breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

There is some good news: 50% of heart attacks have early warning signs. If recognized in time these early warning signs can be treated before the heart is damaged.
