The Chino Valley Fire District nearly doubled the national average for cardiac arrest survival in 2020, according to the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) report from the Inland Counties Emergency Medical Agency (ICEMA). The high cardiac arrest survival rate in the Chino Valley is a direct result of the Fire District’s extensive training programs, the Fire Board’s support to stay at the cutting edge of technology, and our personnel’s commitment to delivering exceptional service. “Nearly doubling the national average is an enormous accomplishment for the Fire District, and most importantly, our community,” said Fire Chief Tim Shackelford. Chino Valley Fire District personnel undergo rigorous training on High-Performance CPR to ensure every compression is administered at the right rate, depth, and recoil. The Fire District invested in the AutoPulse, which is a mechanical CPR device that facilitates chest compressions during the movement of a patient and transportation to the hospital. The Chino Valley Fire District remains committed to making the Chino Valley a Heart Safe community.
