Introducing the Program
Anyone Can Save A Life is a nationwide program for helping teams prepare for and respond to medical emergencies at after school practices and events. Plan. Learn. Save.
Being Prepared is Important
Every second counts when medical emergencies happen, which is why it’s so important to be prepared. Learn how you should prepare for medical emergencies.
Emergency Action Plan Worksheet
Learn how to build an Emergency Action Plan, including what teams should be assembled and what each team is responsible for in the event of a medical emergency.
What is an AED and How to Use it
An automated external defibrillator, or AED, can be used by anyone to save a life. Learn how an AED works to treat life-threatening irregular heart rhythms.
Watch a step-by-step demonstration of an AED in use on a CPR dummy. AEDs provide clear voice prompts and directions and only deliver treatment when it’s needed.
When someone collapses and stops breathing, it could be due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Learn how to recognize and react to SCA, and how to do chest compressions.
Listen to this song while you practice compression-only CPR. At 100 beats per minute, the song’s rhythm matches the ideal rhythm for performing chest compressions.
