Telephone CPR impacts cardiac arrest survival in Johnson County

Acknowledging the important role bystanders play in impacting cardiac arrest survival, with guided assistance from telecommunicators, Johnson County Emergency Management and Communications implemented Resuscitation Quality Improvement® Telecommunicator (RQI-T) last August to prepare telecommunicators to deliver high-quality telephone CPR. RQI-T is co-developed by the American Heart Association, Laerdal Medical and the Resuscitation Academy Foundation and delivered by RQI Partners.

Serving both Johnson and Miami Counties, Johnson County Emergency Management and Communications manages countywide emergency communications systems and dispatch services and is responsible for processing emergency and non-emergency calls for assistance received on E911 (Enhanced 911) and 10-digit telephone lines.
