SALT LAKE CITY — Rocky Mountain Power is going red. North Temple travelers may have noticed the company’s building clad in red in an effort to spread heart-health awareness for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women. However, according to the American Heart Association, 80 percent of cardiac events are preventable through proactive steps and healthy lifestyle choices.

Cindy Crane, CEO of Rocky Mountain Power, said the company chose to partner with AHA because raising awareness could result in many lives saved. Employees are participating in a month-long campaign that includes heart-health education, a health fair and the exploration of healthier lifestyle options.

“This is an extremely important issue that affects all of us,” Crane said. “We are encouraging our employees, as well as the community, to get involved in spreading awareness and fighting heart disease.”

The campaign also focuses on funding research, specifically on women’s heart health, and educating women in the community on how they can reduce their risk factors and live healthier lives.

“We couldn’t do what we do without organizations like Rocky Mountain Power,” said Jennifer Merback, communications director for the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Utah Division. “It is vital to get the message out there to all Utahns that heart disease is the number one killer of women and men, and we are grateful for the help with this awareness.”
