  • CPR Training

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) represents a life-saving skill. It empowers everyday people to assist others in a time of need, enabling them to recognize symptoms of a cardiac emergency and if necessary resuscitate someone who goes into cardiac arrest.  Approximately 70% of Americans feel helpless to act in a cardiac emergency because they do not know how to perform CPR.  With the knowledge of CPR skills, a CPR-certified individual can help reduce the loss of life in emergencies.
