CPR LifeLinks: Uniting 911 & EMS to Save Lives   

More than 350,000 people experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the U.S. each year; less than half of them receive bystander CPR before professional first responders arrive, even though early CPR is known to greatly increase an individual's chances of survival.

In response to a 2015 report from the Institute of Medicine, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration convened experts to create CPR LifeLinks, a national initiative to help communities save more lives through the implementation of telecommunicator CPR and high-performance CPR programs.

In this webinar, learn about:

  • The resources available to help you champion a telecommunicator CPR program in your agency, including training materials and case studies
  • Successes in 911 and EMS system collaboration to strengthen the chain of survival for sudden cardiac arrest
  • How Deschutes County 911 and the Bend Fire Department collaborated to improve survival rates in their communities  

Speakers include:

  • Jim Lanier, Tech Services Division Manager, Alachua County Sheriff's Office
  • Julie Buckingham, Seattle/King County Resuscitation Academy Program Manager, American Heart Association
  • Petar Hossick, EMS Training Captain, Bend Fire and Rescue
