The EMS report cards for V.F. witnessed cardiac arrest survival are in, and the results for most communities in the United States are dismal. Many large U.S. cities average less than 10%. Yet, there is hope. Seattle and King County, Washington, report over 60% survival, among the highest in the world. Why is this? What can your community do to improve?

This one (1) day training is designed to help EMS managers, medical directors, and frontline personnel improve cardiac arrest survival in their communities. Join the leaders for a course that will transform how you think about how EMS manages cardiac arrests.
