Bystander CPR course– Feb. 16

Sidewalk CPR

On Monday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Treehouse Courtyard, Public Safety will host a Bystander CPR (hands only) course. It will only take 2 minutes to learn the proper technique, and the skills you gain could end up saving a life. Eighty eight percent of cardiac arrests occur at home so the chances are high that the life you save will be that of someone you love.

Bystander CPR (hands only) provided immediately after cardiac arrest can triple a victim's chance of survival, yet only 32% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from a bystander. Come out and take a few minutes to learn the proper technique and you’ll be prepared to help those in distress.
