Save Hearts in Arizona Registry & Education 


MISSION: Our vision is for Arizona to have the best survival rate in the world for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA).

The SHARE program, created by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, promotes public awareness and conducts education and research. SHARE is designed to advance OHCA research and identify new strategies to save lives.

SHARE maintains statewide registries for automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and cardiac arrest victims (CA). The registries are designed for quality improvement. The goal is to improve cardiac arrest survival through implementing scientifically proven strategies for EMS and non-EMS personnel.
