February is Heart Awareness Month!

By Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna

The 2020 Coachella Valley Go Red for Women Luncheon will be Fri, Feb 21, 2020 @ 10:30 AM The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage Ca.

The Go Red for Women luncheon continues to serve as the cornerstone event of the Go Red for Women movement in local communities. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives.

Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. We hope you will join us on our mission because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented.


Arrive early 10:30am – 12:00pm to bid on exclusive auction items and enjoy activities in the Red Expo. Visit our sponsor booths featuring interactive activities and educational information,  health screenings, CPR training and more.

12:00pm – 1:30pm Luncheon & Program. Back by popular demand, Bryan Gallo and Thalia Hayden of NBC Palm Springs will be hosting the program once again. We are also thrilled to welcome local author, Maggie Downs, as our 2020 Keynote Speaker.

Learn to know the warning signs. Tightness or discomfort in the chest, neck, arm, or stomach that comes on when you exert yourself but goes away with rest may be the first sign of angina, which can lead to a heart attack if left untreated.
