|The San Luis Obispo County EMS Division is comprised of the EMS Agency and the Emergency Preparedness Program. As a division of the Public Health Department, we provide system
guidance and oversight through pre-hospital provider and public comment driven policy development and a comprehensive quality improvement program. We support medical disaster
preparedness through the disaster response planning process, and support the appropriate use of 911, CPR, AEDs and First Aid through public education. We ensure excellent
pre-hospital personnel through training, certification,accreditation, authorization and continuing education program review. We support the Public Health Department, in the management
and coordination of public health emergencies, such as: Natural disasters, Pandemic Flu and Bioterrorism incidents.
“Hands Only” CPR, chest compressions without mouth-to-mouth breathing, has been proven to be as effective as standard CPR. The
earlier CPR is started, the better the outcome for the victim. Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest
can nearly triple a victim’s chance of survival. But an average of only 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander.
