Cardiac Emergency Response Plan

A cardiac emergency response plan is a written document that establishes specific steps to reduce death from cardiac arrest in school settings. A carefully orchestrated response to cardiac emergencies will reduce deaths in school settings, and ensure that chaos does not lead to an improper or no response. Preparation is the essential key to saving lives.
