Minutes Matter, a partnership between UPMC and the City of Pittsburgh, provides our community with access to basic emergency information and education about life-saving interventions for cardiac events, bleeding, and opioid overdoses. Emergencies can take many forms and occur at any time, and the community members who are nearby in those first few minutes are not typically trained professionals, but with some basic education, anyone can be more prepared to help save a life in the critical minutes before first responders and emergency professionals arrive.
