Ooma Blog – 8.5.19 (7.31.19)

A health or safety emergency must be met with swift action to protect the people and places you care about.

It starts with a call to 911 for help. Dispatchers know that seconds can mean the difference between life and death, and how fast you can get help may determine the eventual outcome:

  • Cardiac Arrest: For every minute that goes by without CPR and defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by 7-10 percent.
  • Stroke: For every minute without treatment, two million brain cells die.
  • Fire: It takes just five minutes for a house to be engulfed in flames.
  • Gas Leak: In one case, there were only 20 minutes between the first report and an explosion that killed eight people.
