Reading Emergency Unit is pleased to be an authorized training center for the Michigan Heart Association.

As EMS professionals, we know how important the first few minutes after a cardiac arrest can be. The increase in survivalbility drastically improves when early CPR is provided. Unfortunately, only about 46% of the people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help they need before professional help arrives.
