Every year in Switzerland 8.000 victims are affected by sudden cardiac arrest, less than 5% survive and few of them can be reach promptly by the rescuers services.
Starting from the experience that we have gained, in collaboration with our cantonal partners, we have developed CH Responder, the first national App for Swiss First Responders.
CH Responder will quickly activate the First Responders, alerting not only the rescuers of the Canton where the emergency occurs but also the rescuers of other cantons when they are near the site of the intervention.
CH Responder was created to meet a triple objective:
- Save more lives across Switzerland by alerting more rescuers;
- Create a community of First Responders at the national level;
- Improve collaboration between the cantons in the management of first aid in the event of cardiac arrest.
