About CPR

Almost 2/3 of the deaths from heart attacks occur before the victim reaches a hospital. Many deaths can be prevented with prompt help. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or CPR, performed promptly can help victims survive until advanced life support arrives on the scene.

Commitment to Learn CPR

No matter what your reason for wanting to be CPR certified, it is important to realize that just knowing how to properly perform CPR will make you a more useful member of your community. Brain death occurs 4-6 minutes after the heart stops beating, knowing how to perform CPR and calling 911 is a major key to helping save lives.

All classes are available online, ending with a Skills Check to be scheduled with Lt. Carlos Perez (see details under the Let’s Sign Up! section.)
