Date:1/8/2010

PHOENIX, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation announced today the first virtual affiliate of its National Survivor Network(TM) at the National Association of EMS Physicians annual conference. The affiliate will help to localize global awareness efforts and mobilize advocates to extend the Foundation's mission.

"Having a Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation affiliate in Arizona will be a tremendous addition to the Save Hearts in Arizona Registry & Education (SHARE) Program," said Bentley J. Bobrow, Medical Director, Arizona Department of Health Services, Bureau of EMS and Trauma System. "It will offer substantial resources and important information to our cardiac arrest survivors."

The new affiliate also serves as an extension to the Foundation's signature program, The National Survivor Network(TM), the nation's first online community of sudden cardiac arrest survivors. The Network gives survivors and their families an opportunity to:

-- Find others who have experienced this life-changing event

-- Share experiences and help one another in the healing process

-- Participate in research and awareness initiatives designed to help save more lives.

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation welcomes survivors to join the National Survivor Network(TM) to connect with other survivors and their families, participate in discussion forums, write blog posts or a personal reflection, and help in the fight to raise awareness and ultimately save more lives. Registration is free at www.sca-aware.org.

The Foundation also invites other EMS Medical Directors to consider creating similar affiliates in their regions.
