Did you know that sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States? Unfortunately, most people who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital do not get cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from a bystander, which significantly lessens their chances of survival. CPR is easy to learn, and we offer hands-on training at no charge to members of our community. Click HERE to register for a class.
