"A wildfire is a large, destructive fire that spreads quickly over woodland or brush." There have been over 67,000 wildfires in the last ten years in just the United States alone. With more people making their homes in rural areas, (which are surrounded by nothing but woodland) it is important to be prepared. There are wildfires constantly happening all over the world; as currently there is one in Australia. Even though it is across the world, no matter where you are located everyone is at risk for a wildfire to happen. Be prepared by having an emergency plan and kit to be ready to grab on the go for each member of the household.

Cardiac arrest happens when your heart unexpectedly fails, resulting in a loss of consciousness. In order for a potentially good cardiac arrest outcome, CPR and defibrillation needs to be started as soon as possible. With each vital second passing, without proper treatment, the odds of survival are meek. That is why it is important to have trained personnel on standby, in case of a sudden disturbance in the heart's electrical status, causing the heart to fail. But, most of the time cardiac arrest happens out of the hospital setting.

Check out the full article here to see all the data that was collected and provided by the mock scenarios that were performed.Elsvier: Local volunteer network improves response times
