EMS Offers free CPR Training Clinics

Post Date:02/15/2018 10:10 AM

Over the past twenty years Wilson County EMS has been involved in incidents where a patient in cardiac arrest has been resuscitated. The chain of survival begins with a Wilson County citizen recognizing that a person needs assistance, activating 9-1-1, and caring for the patient until help arrives.

Learn How to Save a Life
Approximately 850,000 Americans suffer cardiac arrest a year. Out of that large number only 15% receive CPR before Advanced Life Support arrives. The result is that 85% of Cardiac arrest patients are not given the chance to survive.

Free CPR Training Clinics
Wilson County EMS would like to change those numbers by offering free CPR Training Clinics to any business or organization in Wilson County.
