CPR LifeLinks: Uniting EMS & 911 to Save Lives
More than 350,000 people experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the U.S. each year; less than half of them receive bystander CPR before professional first responders arrive, even though early CPR is known to greatly increase an individual’s chances of survival.
In response to a 2015 report from the Institute of Medicine, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration convened experts to create CPR LifeLinks, a national initiative to help communities save more lives through the implementation of telecommunicator CPR and high-performance CPR programs.
In this webinar, learn about:
- The resources available to help you champion a telecommunicator CPR program in your agency, including training materials and case studies
- Successes in 911 and EMS system collaboration to strengthen the chain of survival for sudden cardiac arrest
- How Deschutes County 911 and the Bend Fire Department collaborated to improve survival rates in their communities

Using Supplemental 911 Location Data to Improve Emergency Response
A 911 caller’s location is considered the most critical piece of information required to properly route the call and provide emergency response in a timely fashion. Location information will continue to improve as emergency communications improve, but what is available today? This webinar shares supplemental location tools available now and how they help 911 better locate callers.
One such tool this webinar discusses is a new resource, “Recommended Best Practices for Supplemental 911 Location Data,” that:
- Describes how supplemental 911 location data is provided to PSAPs
- Compares those processes to the way location information is provided by traditional 911 call processes
- Recommends a set of best practices to guide the development, delivery and use of supplemental 911 location data
