chain of survival

Lexington County EMS is committed to providing public education about EMS and your health. You do not have to be in EMS to be a lifesaver. We offer regularly scheduled free CPR classes geared to the public. Although in EMS we continue to take advantage of technical advancements in pre-hospital medicine that improve the outcome of our patients, the greatest factors in saving lives following sudden collapse in adults due to a cardiac event are still early recognition and notification to 911, early CPR and early defibrillation. Learn how to perform these lifesaving steps by attending one of our free classes.
