Home Is Where the Heart Is - Building Residential Rescue Teams

A Heart-Saving Mission at Home

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the new edition of the Rescue RN newsletter. Today, we're bringing the focus back home – where, surprisingly, 80% of cardiac arrests occur. Are you prepared to act before help arrives? Let's explore how to make every home a heart-safe zone.

The Startling Reality: Cardiac Arrests at Home

It's a common misconception that most heart emergencies happen in public spaces. In reality, the majority occur at home. This raises a crucial question:

If a loved one were to suffer a cardiac arrest at home, would you know what to do in those critical minutes before EMS arrives?

EMS Response Time: Every Second Counts

On average, it can take EMS 8-12 minutes to arrive after a 911 call. In cardiac emergencies, every second is precious. Knowing what to do in those first minutes can make a life-changing difference.

Creating 'Residential Rescue Teams'

Why not turn your neighborhood into a network of first responders?

We're talking about 'Residential Rescue Teams' – groups of trained individuals ready to respond in an emergency. From block parties to holiday gatherings, we can use these community events to practice hands-only CPR and other life-saving skills.

CPR Training: Making It a Community Affair

Imagine integrating a quick, 10-minute CPR training session into your summer barbeques, birthday parties, or holiday get-togethers. This simple act could save a family member or a neighbor from the worst outcome.

Locating Your Nearest AED

Where is your neighborhood's closest Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?

These devices are crucial in a cardiac emergency. Part of being a Residential Rescue Team is quickly knowing where to find an AED.
