An emergency can occur anytime...

The sad truth is most people don’t  survive a cardiac arrest.  Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it’s too late. Fewer than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby.

  • Almost 80% of sudden cardiac arrests happen in the home.
  • 92% of victims don’t survive, often because people around them don’t take action and begin CPR.

You can help change this statistic.  The American Heart Association’s CPR and AED learning programs help increase survival rates by training people just like you to respond quickly.
