If you had to, could you save someone’s life?

Learning first aid and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) will give you the skills you need in a medical emergency. Heart attacks, strokes, or convulsions have a way of sneaking up on us without warning. Each passing minute after collapsing from a cardiac arrest can reduce the chance of survival by as much as 10% so knowing what to do is critical. Even if we want to intervene to reduce the effect of a burn, fracture, or allergic reaction, you need to know what to do. Knowing first aid and CPR will place you in a position where you can take responsible, appropriate action in an emergency.

  1. Call 911 for the paramedics.
  2. Start CPR; push hard and fast on the person’s chest to the beat of the song “Stayin’ Alive” (100-125 beats per minute).
  3. In a public place, ask for the AED (or public access defibrillator). Follow the instructions, and administer a life-saving shock if necessary.
