McKinney Fire Department (MFD) Earns a Guinness World Records® Title!
Congratulations to all our EMS Faculty, Instructors, Staff and Students who participated in this life-saving event!
"McKinney, Texas (Nov. 9, 2018)
     The McKinney Fire Department and McKinney Independent School District (MISD) teamed up to save lives and set a Guinness World Record title. During tonight's McKinney H.S. versus McKinney Boyd game, MFD provided 'Hands-Only CPR' training. McKinney ISD's new stadium that can hold up to 12,000 people was the perfect spot for the challenge.
     Special thanks to Baylor Scott & White Medical Center - McKinney and Medical City McKinney for providing help and support during this process.
     The official Guinness World Records® title is: Most pledges to learn CPR. Before the end of the game, MFD and volunteers gathered 12,128 signatures.
     'Every year, approximately half a million Americans die of cardiac arrest,' said McKinney Fire EMS Chief Charlie Skaggs. 'The World Record is fun, but the fact is that the people who learned Hands-only CPR tonight could very well end up saving a life.'"
