February 24, 2022 - Middletown High School's HOSA [Health Occupations Students of America] Chapter in Delaware - For the past few months our group “Anyone Can be a Lifesaver” has worked to increase awareness about CPR and sudden cardiac arrest. Performing CPR on a victim who has gone into cardiac arrest nearly triples their chance of survival. Our goal is to ensure that potential bystanders in a life or death situation are aware of this, as well as proper CPR procedures in the hopes of reducing out-of-hospital cardiac arrest deaths. We have reached over 6,000 individuals in the forms of flyers, pamphlets, virtual infographics, social media, in person CPR workshops, and this PSA. We hope to continue spreading our message in the future at events and through the circulation of vital information.
