WHEN MINUTES MATTER, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO SAVE A LIFE

In an emergency, minutes matter. You never know when you might find yourself at the scene of an accident, cardiac arrest, overdose, or other crisis situation. From calling 911 – and knowing what to say – to clearing a path for emergency professionals, even the most basic knowledge can save lives and improve outcomes.

UPMC launched Minutes Matter to provide community members with access to basic emergency information and education about life-saving interventions.

Rescuing A Father Who Had Overdosed

My family and I went into a McDonald’s on our way home from calling hours at a nearby funeral home. While we were ordering our food, my husband and I noticed a young woman holding a baby, screaming a man’s name.
