EMS Week: Thursday is Save-a-Life Day!

May 24, 2018

All first responders – EMTs, paramedics, firefighters and law enforcement officers – are key players in the chain of survival for the victims of active shooter and other mass casualty incidents. So are bystanders. 
Here are some excellent resources to share with your community to help save lives until EMS arrives at the scene.
  • Until Help Arrives – takes the public through scenarios of why they should help, how they can help, and how to mentally prepare themselves to provide help.
  • Stop The Bleed / CPR Challenge – bystanders learn CPR compression techniques and steps to control bleeding.
On behalf of everyone at NAEMT, thank you for serving your patients, communities and our nation on the frontlines of care! We are very grateful for your service.
