Idaho Falls Fire Department Needs YOUR help! >
The more people who know CPR, the more lives we can save! The Idaho Falls Fire Department and City of Idaho Falls are working on improving
our community's CPR (cardiopulmonary resusitation) knowledge and would appreciate your feedback.
* It is estimated that nationally only 2-3% of American's know CPR.
* Of the 389,000 heart attacks that happen annually, only 40% are witnessed.
* Of those witnessed, only 40% of victims received CPR by bystanders. This means that only 9% will survive to hospital discharge.
* If CPR is performed early, before help arrives, then survival to hospital discharge can be as high as 30%.
Lets work together to do better IDAHO FALLS!
