World Save a Life

World Save a Life

In 2013, we began teaching life-saving techniques in communities nationwide. Since starting the World CPR Challenge, our teams have trained more than 380,000 people in compression-only CPR. Since 2017, we have been honored to team up with two of the largest names in EMS: the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). Together, we have trained thousands in bystander-CPR, further increasing our ability to improve the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) survivor rate.

World Save a Life Challenge

Every year, we use our network of EMTs and paramedics in communities coast-to-coast, and in several countries, to put in place a compression-only CPR training effort. In recent years, we have added an additional component to our World CPR Challenge and began providing Stop the Bleed training.

Why compression-only CPR?

Each year, Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) unexpectedly takes the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans. Annually, AMR crews care for more than 30,000 SCA patients. Studies show survival from SCA can be doubled or tripled if CPR is administered until emergency medical services arrive. Simplifying CPR to include only compressions allow bystanders the ability to perform a simple task that can help keep patients alive until professional help arrives.

Save a Life: Learn the ABC’s of Bleeding Control

Did you know trauma is the leading cause of death of Americans under age 40? Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss.
