CPR & First Aid Training
In 1960, a group of resuscitation pioneers combined mouth-to-mouth breathing with chest compressions to create Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, the lifesaving action we now call “CPR.” This action, when provided immediately after a sudden cardiac arrest, can double – even triple – a victim’s chance of survival.
CPR has saved lives for over 50 years! Never taken a CPR class? Need to renew your CPR certification? We can help!
