WCEMS has joined forces with the PulsePoint Foundation to offer an amazing Apple or Android app.  This app allows a member of the public with CPR training to be notified when they are within 1/4 mile of a cardiac arrest in a public place.  Off-duty first responders, healthcare workers, lifeguards, ANYONE with basic CPR training and the willingness to use it should have PulsePoint.  Download the app using the links on this page or visit www.pulsepoint.org to learn more.

Take 10 CPR
Check, Call, Compress!

Take10 CPR is a nationally recognized program that we’re presenting to increase cardiac arrest survival. WCEMS System responders can’t do it alone. In only 10 short minutes you can learn how to help us save a life in the early moments after cardiac arrest occurs. Without bystander CPR in the first few minutes, the chances of survival drop dramatically. This simple program allows us to train a few people who in turn pay it forward. If you’re interested in learning about this program for your business, place of worship, school, etc, please contact us!  It’s free and best of all there’s no mouth-to-mouth involved. Yuk!
To request a Take10 CPR course be held for your organization fill out the form below!
