Let’s face it, sudden cardiac arrests are often fatal. But starting in 2017, the Chino Valley Fire Department (CVFD) rolled up their sleeves and fought to improve their survivability rates and save more of their community members.
CVFD implemented a QA/QI program that proved to be a game-changer. In fact, their Utstein Survival rates have more than tripled (from 16.7% to 62.5%) since 2018 – soaring above the national average.
