The mission of the Ann Arbor Fire Department is to efficiently and professionally protect the residents and visitors of the City of Ann Arbor from adverse effects of fires, sudden medical emergencies or exposure to dangerous conditions created by man or nature that may threaten their lives or property. We strive to do so using a wide variety of programs varying from prevention to response in a safe and courteous manner.

AAFD participating in U-M EROCA study 

Sudden cardiac arrest is a life-threatening condition in which the heart suddenly stops beating, thus also stopping blood flow to the body. The result is fatal if not reversed quickly; which is why first responders play a crucial role.

The Ann Arbor Fire Department is participating in the University of Michigan Emergency Medicine Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for Refractory Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest study (EROCA). Adults in the city of Ann Arbor who experience sudden cardiac arrest and do not recover after initial attempts of CPR and advanced cardiac life support at the scene may be included in the study.

As detailed on its website, the EROCA study’s purpose is to examine the feasibility and potential benefit of early transport of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients with ongoing CPR to an emergency department with the proper, advanced equipment — extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

AAFD looks forward to helping provide valuable data and experiences to this potentially life-saving study.
