COMMUNITY CPR

Give CPR and save a life. You could be the difference for your parent, spouse, child or friend. Did you know about 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes? If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love. The benefits of performing CPR can double or triple the chance of survival. Don’t wait for someone else to step up. Learn and do CPR. You might even save someone close to you.
