American Heart Association's Mission: Lifeline EMS Gold PLUS Award
On April 24, 2018, the Chesapeake Fire Department was awarded the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® EMS Gold PLUS Award for implementing quality improvement measures for the treatment of patients who experience severe heart attacks. This is the fifth consecutive year in which our Department has been recognized for exceptional care of cardiovascular patients.
Every year, more than 250,000 people experience an ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), the deadliest type of heart attack caused by a blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment. To prevent death, it’s critical to restore blood flow as quickly as possible, by mechanically opening the blocked vessel.
PulsePoint - Lifesaving Smartphone App
Chesapeake Fire Department and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center are launching a lifesaving smartphone app called PulsePoint to increase the likelihood of a person surviving a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). SCA is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths. It can strike anyone, anywhere, anytime. A man in the restaurant next door. A woman across the mall. You’re CPR-trained and glad to help in an emergency. If only you knew about it. Now you will. Learn more>>
Learn Hands-Only CPR
Hands-Only CPR is the compression part of traditional CPR. If you will do chest compressions until 9-1-1 responders get to the patient you will give them their best chance of surviving their cardiac arrest. To learn this valuable skill it only takes an hour and we offer the training for free. Dates of our next classes>>
