Each year, approximately 300,000 people suffer a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). First responders play a critical role in the chain of survival, and it is our hope that first responders and EMS will join our efforts to increase awareness of the public health crisis of SCA. The First On The Scene Toolkit provides suggestions and powerful tools to use in your public outreach efforts. EAs first responder, you serve on the front lines of critical care, often making first contact with patients in a time of most need, and we welcome and value your partnership in raising awareness of SCA and the public’s role in increasing survival from SCA.
