On-Site “FREE” Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Training
Did you know that Basic Life Support (BLS) also known as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) can help save lives along with activation of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS), commonly known as 9-1-1 Emergency Services. Research has shown that when a cardiac arrest victim’s heart stops beating, a bystander should begin CPR within 2 minutes of the witnessed event. Without oxygen, the brain, heart, lungs & other bodily systems will likely sustain some type of injury or damage. By 9 minutes, the brain is likely to have irreversible damage. Every SECOND counts when a heart is no longer beating properly or not beating at all.

Whether you are young or seasoned in life, wouldn’t YOU want to be the Good Samaritan and come alongside someone in desperate need of your CPR bystander assistance? Your decision to HELP by performing CPR until EMS arrives is critical for achieving greater survivability for outside-of-hospital cardiac events.
