Free CPR Training Wednesday | Events
Two local EMS companies plan to give free CPR training Wednesday at Tivoli Village.
American Medical Response and MedicWest Ambulance will offer free training on compression-only CPR. The event is part of AMR’s nationwide observance of National Emergency Medical Services Week.
Compression-only CPR helps to keep blood flowing through a victim’s body just by pressing on the chest in a hard, fast rhythm. Bystanders who provide compression-only CPR can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. near Kabuki Japanese Restaurant.
