Every Second Counts In An Emergency
24 seconds doesn’t seem like a lot of time. But in an emergency, every second counts!
In 2019 the Colleyville Fire Department initiated a vehicle response program that cut 24 seconds off the response time for a medical emergency call. Shortened response time, along with the fire department’s commitment to training, has resulted in 12 lives being saved the last two years in response to cardiac events. In an emergency, every second is critical. Saving time definitely saves lives!
