AMR South Mississippi Promotes CPR Safety with AED Donation


AMR South Mississippi donates automatic external defibrillator (AED) to Harrison County youth court in effort to increase cardiac survival rates.
AMR South Mississippi has donated an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to the Harrison County Board of Supervisors for use in the county youth court. This donation is part of AMR’s efforts to increase cardiac survival rates in South Mississippi.

AMR Director of Business Development and Government Affairs Julia Clarke states, “If performed immediately, bystander assisted CPR can double or even triple the chance of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. The addition of this AED device in the youth court will help bring lifesaving technology to members of our community and, hopefully, inspire residents to become CPR certified.”

AMR established an AHA training facility in Gulfport nearly 30 years ago and has since trained thousands of community members in CPR. According to the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) 2022 data for AMR South Mississippi, the average out-of-hospital cardiac survival rate is nearly two percent higher than the national average.

As the area’s provider of high-quality, pre-hospital care for nearly 50 years, AMR South Mississippi encourages all community members to become trained in CPR. More information on cardiac arrest can be found at
