Ways You Can Help

In an emergency, time is critical.


As a community member who is familiar with basic emergency information, you can respond quickly and take action — from calling 911 to starting chest compressions. This can buy precious time until emergency responders can get to the scene.

Three key areas where people can make a difference:

Cardiac Events

  • Chest Compressions (Hands-Only CPR)
  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Bleeding

Covering the wound, applying pressure, and using a tourniquet

Opioid Overdose

Narcan® administration
