The chain of survival is a series of steps, which give a victim of cardiac arrest the best chance of survival. Early CPR is an important link in this chain, but far too often it is administered too late, or not at all. FDNY Deputy Chief James Darnowski discusses the importance of bystander intervention in the event of a cardiac arrest, and some of the work the FDNY Mobile CPR Unit is undertaking in training the public to become potential lifesavers. Captain Elizabeth Cascio hosts.
