Why is this important?  Calling 911 and starting chest compressions are the first two links in helping a person survive SCA.   

The American Heart Association's continued research has shown that a victim's chances of survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) depend on many interrelated factors as depicted in the infographic shown above.  The symbolism that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link represents a community's response to SCA.  Johnson County is a strong length of chain, but a chain needs to be inspected and repaired.  Fortunately, there are many people throughout the county that feel the same way that helps keep the chain strong.  PulsePoint is one of those products that help alert bystanders that they are nearby a 911 call where Call Push Shock is needed.
