For Immediate Release - April 19, 2016 –  The Frankfort Fire Department will soon be putting new procedures in place which they feel will increase the quality of care for cardiac arrest patients according to Fire Chief Eddie Slone. 

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly, which is caused by arrhythmias, including abnormal or irregular heart rhythms.  When this occurs immediate attention is needed by starting CPR right away, using a defibrillator to shock the heart and establish a normal heart rhythm, and in many cases the administration of cardiac drugs.  Without these tools death can occur within minutes of a cardiac arrest.

Request for Qualifications
Community Engagement and Master Planning Project

Request Summary
The City of Frankfort and Franklin County have been asked by the State to develop a public input strategy for the approximately 8 – 16 acres of property where the Capital Plaza Complex exists. This complex includes a multi-story office building, a Convention Center and retail space commonly referred to as the Fountain Place Shops.  As partners, the City and County are committed to working with the Finance Cabinet to develop a community engagement process that not only involves the Capital Plaza campus, but one that also includes building upon our historic downtown and our vibrant riverfront. We believe this opportunity is much bigger than the 8 – 16 acres and that the engagement process should include a community vision and plan that integrate these special spaces.
