Learn CPR
Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in adults. When a person experiences sudden cardiac arrest, their heart stops its normal beating and quivers instead. This quivering is called ventricular fibrillation. You've probably heard it referred to on medical television shows as "V-Fib."

Only one thing -- an electric shock from a defibrillator -- can reset the heart's rhythm. The sooner such a shock is delivered, the greater the patient's chances are at survival. The Maumelle Fire Department responds to all cardiac medical calls with a defibrillator. However, CPR extends the window in which successful defibrillation can occur.

CPR administered while Maumelle firefighters are enroute doubles the chances of patient survival.
By learning CPR yourself, you could help save a life.

CPR Classes
The Maumelle Fire Department no longer provides CPR classes to the general public. Several local businesses are listed in the yellow pages to provide training to your group or organization.
