World CPR Day Training Challenge Set for EMS Week

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO--More than 350,000 Americans experience sudden cardiac arrest annually. Of those treated by EMS, only one in 10 survive. When a bystander performs CPR until EMS arrives, the odds of the victim surviving can triple.

To raise awareness and increase bystander CPR, American Medical Response (AMR), the nation’s largest provider of emergency medical services and medical transportation, today announced it is collaborating with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) for one of the largest bystander CPR trainings in history. During National EMS Week, May 21-27, the organizations will team up for the fifth annual World CPR Challenge with the goal of training one million people.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
