Todd said the City of Katy was assessed for the first time in the Fall of 2013 and achieved the Bronze recognition level. At the completion of the assessments, Katy scored 79. 5, with 2. 5 bonus points out of a possible 104, just 5 points shy of achieving the Silver level.

Cities involved in the program are assessed on 10 indicators critical to reducing the burden of heart disease and stroke. The environmental indicators include providing the public with information on cardiovascular disease and strokes, physical activity areas, healthy eating options, and defibrillators and CPR classes in the community. Policy indicators include smoke- free ordinances in work sites, restaurants and day care centers; EMS system with priority response times to 911 calls for heart attacks or strokes; and recognized guidelines for the care and treatment of heart attacks and strokes in hospitals. Todd said the City scored low on the comprehensive tobacco control initiative, which includes 100% smoke-free city ordinances. She said the Council recommends the City continue to work with policymakers to pass stronger tobacco ordinances city-wide and to focus on efforts that meet the cultural and language needs of individuals from disparate population groups. The City scored 100% on three of the indicators, including attainment of prompt cardiac event response, prompt stroke event response, and achievement of healthcare improvements.
