You Can Help Make Las Vegas One Of The Safest Places In The Nation For Heart Attack Victims!
Las Vegas Fire Fighters are among the most effective emergency responders in the United States when it comes to saving cardiac arrest patients. Now, Las Vegas Fire Fighters are reaching out to the community to help Las Vegans learn compression only CPR from the Red Cross.
Nationally, only about 5% of cardiac arrest patients survive and go on to lead fully productive lives. Because of Las Vegas Fire Fighters’ Six Person Rapid Response Team, their use of Therapeutic Hypothermia Cardiac Care and advanced technology in the field, Fire Fighters are ready to take lifesaving to a new level.
Our goal for the community – to save as many as 50% of all cardiac arrest victims when CPR is administered prior to our arrival on the scene.
Las Vegas Fire Fighters will be visiting all types of community groups to help Red Cross instructors demonstrate CPR. If you would like to have Las Vegas Fire Fighters and the Red Cross speak to your group please call 538-6117.
