  • Why is this site important for you? 1000 people a day in the USA have a cardiac arrest. Seventy percent are in private residences. Calling 911 and waiting for the ambulance yields a 10% survival rate. You can do much, much better!
  • SLICC
    A 501(c)(3) public charity incorporated in Georgia, is 100% staffed by volunteers, formally known as
    'Saving Lives In Chatham County, Inc.' and dedicated to reducing death and disability from cardiac arrest and stroke.

    At least one in ten of you, in your lifetime, will see a family member, friend, or acquaintance have a cardiac arrest...


    If you wait for the ambulance to start CPR, the outlook is bleak - about a 10% average survival rate in the USA.


    You can increase that person's cardiac arrest survival odds from 10% to 60% by defibrillating within three minutes of the arrest!


    If you could immediately and continuously receive two inch chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute with full recoil, your chances would soar, but few people can administer that quality of CPR at all, let alone for the time it will take the ambulance crew to get there.


    And while you're making sure that the people around you learn CPR, have them learn how to spot when you're having a stroke.
