Springfield City Club regularly holds programs from noon to 1:00 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month (although there may be occasional adjustments). All programs are open to the public. While we look forward to being able to meet in person at some time in the future, at present, all meetings are held as Zoom webinars. Invitations are sent to all those on our mailing list, so please sign up if you wish to receive an invitation
Cardiac Arrest is a frequent, and often preventable, cause of death. But survival depends on many citizens being trained on how to respond to someone who experiences cardiac arrest. Joshua Moore, the HeartSAFE Coordinator for Eugene Springfield Fire will explain the signs of arrest and how any citizen can help.
Mr. Moore has over 30 years public service, is a Veteran of Dessert Shield, a Firefighter Medic, and Emergency Medicine Instructor.
He created the ACT:C3 program in 2012 to improve local survival from Cardiac Arrest. Initial witnessed (out of hospital) arrest survival was 12%, and improved to 59.1% in 2018, nearly a 500% improvement. In 2018 it also meant 18 people resumed normal lives after cardiac arrest.
He has now rebranded program to gain HeartSAFE designation in 2022. He is seeking community wide support from our Metro area to become 3rd community in the United States to meet criteria from Citizen’s CPR Foundation. Doing so, he hopes will improve survival for witnessed arrest another 25%.
