CPR Flash Mob to be Held at Jefferson County Fair

Out-of- hospital sudden cardiac arrest (OHSCA) is a leading cause of death in the U.S. Each year over 326,000
 
people suffer an OHSCA and only about 10% survive. Fortunately, when bystanders quickly recognize cardiac
 
arrest, CALL 911, perform “Hands-Only CPR © and use an AED, the survival rate may be doubled or even
 
tripled. In an effort to improve OHSCA survival rates, the Public Health Solutions’ (PHS) Saving Rural Hearts
 
Program and the Jefferson County Fair Board are partnering to bring a CPR Flash Mob to this year’s county
 
fair. The goals are to increase the public’s knowledge about cardiac arrest and to help every-day citizens learn
 
the skills necessary to save the life of a spouse, family member, friend, or even a stranger, should the need for
 
CPR arise.
