Ohio Lawmakers Have an Opportunity to Save Lives with Senate Bill 50

On January 4, 2021, 21-day old Cameron was getting sick. While his parents were putting him in his car seat to go to the doctor, he stopped breathing. They called 911, where there was a calm and trained professional who helped them through one of the most terrifying moments of their lives. In that couple of minutes, while EMS was on their way, Bill and Kym performed CPR on their baby. Moments before the ambulance arrived, Cameron started breathing again.


The Ohio Senate is considering Senate Bill 50, Next-Gen 911 legislation that would include Telecommunicator CPR (T-CPR). T-CPR is when a 911 operator coaches someone through CPR until emergency services arrive on scene. We know every second matters when someone is experiencing a cardiac event. Starting CPR as soon as possible is vital, just ask Cameron.

Please take 30 seconds now to send a message urging Ohio lawmakers to support Senate Bill 50.

Every year more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac events happen and only 10% survive the event. Research shows that communities that have T-CPR improve that number by 50%.

Senate Bill 50 will ensure telecommunicators have the tools and training they need to instruct callers in lifesaving CPR until EMS arrives.

Urge Ohio's lawmakers to pass Senate Bill 50 to save lives like Cameron's.

Thank you for being a voice for a healthy Ohio!
