OKLAHOMA CITY:  Gov. Mary Fallin is honoring emergency medical services personnel and municipal fire departments for their efforts in saving cardiac arrest patients.

The survival rate for people in Tulsa and Oklahoma City who experience cardiac arrest is 45.2 percent undefined nearly five times the national average.

To honor the achievement, Fallin has proclaimed March as Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survival Rate Month.

She says Oklahomans can take comfort in knowing the state is home to one of the nation's most advanced emergency medical systems. Fallin plans to meet with representatives from EMSA and municipal fire departments on March 19.
