Friday was a day of celebration and resolve for Warren County Emergency Medical Services. In July 2021, EMS joined a Duke University study with the goal of increasing the cardiac arrest survival rate both here and throughout North Carolina. Warren County Emergency Management Coordinator Chris Tucker reported last week that the survival rate has increased this year, and EMS is determined to do what it can for the survival rate to continue to move in the right direction. Warren County EMS is participating in the RAndomized Cluster Evaluation of CArdiac Arrest Systems Study, or RACE CARS Trial, which will continue over a total period of seven years. On June 17, representatives from Duke University, Warren County EMS, local fire departments and other emergency response personnel met at Warren County Emergency Management to reflect on progress over the past year and what can be done to continue to increase the cardiac arrest survival rate.
