Each year over 424,000 Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest. Eighty Eight percent of these will occur at home.
For every minute Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is not performed, a victim’s chance of survival drops by 10%. With early bystander CPR, we can more than double a victim’s chance for survival. Survival rates will increase to 86%if the following threesteps can be completed within 4 minutes of a Cardiac Arrest:
First CALL 911
Early effective CPR
Use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
First responders need your help!
On average, less than 6% of people will survive a cardiac arrest. However, in Kings County (Greater Seattle), WA, the success rate is 62%. The difference is Public Education. That region has excellent community involvement when it comes to bystander CPR. Many lives have been saved, thanks to CPR being initiated before the arrival of the first responders. The Ridge Road Fire District wants to see survival rates surpass those cities by providing our community the opportunity to learn how to respond in the event that someone needs CPR / AED.
