Minutes Matter During a Heart Attack

Minutes before his heart stopped...

Would you?

Minutes mattered when Howard County Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief Jimmy Brothers suffered a massive heart attack. Ironically, he had helped train the first responders on the lifesaving cardiac protocol that would save his life.

If you suspect a heart attack, call 9-1-1 instead of driving yourself to the hospital. This allows specially trained EMS to stabilize you in transport and activate cardiac teams at the hospital - who can treat you more quickly, which can improve your recovery.
