Pacific County Fire District #1 and the American Heart Association are dedicated to reducing the number of deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke. One way they do this is by training people how to perform CPR to save the life of someone in cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association offers a variety of CPR classes for everyone, not just for medical professionals.
“As many as 400,000 people in the US will suffer from cardiac arrest this year. The majority of these individuals will die before even reaching the hospital”.*
It is a fact that if more people were trained in CPR, the number of survivors could double or triple. Statistics show that among the American population, 70% may not even respond to a cardiac arrest emergency because they are uneducated and do not know how to apply the lifesaving techniques of CPR. This is a sad statistic, and the American Heart Association’s mission is to improve these numbers.
By getting CPR certified, we are embracing the American Heart Association’s motto: “Learn and Live.”
Why Take American Heart Association CPR Classes?
