CPR & AED
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique that helps maintain blood flow to the brain and heart in an emergency situation. CPR can save your life, your children’s lives, your parent's lives, or even a stranger’s life. Training is easily accessible to anyone who wants it and not difficult to complete. Learning the basics can be empowering, and it is something you will remember throughout your lifetime.
If you are ever in an emergency situation, the first step is to always call 911. But in some cases, those few minutes spent waiting on a medical professional are precious. If you are certified in CPR, you will be able to confidently and effectively apply these skills to help aid the victim until the first responders arrive and can take over.
Studies suggest that less than half of those who suffer from cardiac arrest receive any type of CPR assistance from a bystander. When these types of situations arise, the common response is that no bystander was certified in CPR or that there was an aspect of fear involved, causing those around to hesitate in administering this lifesaving measure. Taking a CPR course can alleviate any fear you may have in administering proper CPR techniques should an emergency occur.
