BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — CPR is a vital skill, and performing it without your mouth is all the rage in 2014. Palm Beach County is offering free training at firehouses throughout the county — and in Boca Raton — during February.
From the county:
Residents can receive free hands-only CPR training in 30-minute sessions to be offered at 19 fire stations located throughout Palm Beach County on February 8, 2014 from 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.. The sessions will be taught by students from the Palm Beach County School District Medical Magnet Program along with the Palm Beach State College paramedic students who are hands-only CPR Instructors. Participants should wear comfortable clothes.
Knowing hands-only CPR can help save lives. Early medical intervention in cardiac arrest victims is a key component to improve survival rates. By increasing the number of county residents familiar with the skills and techniques to perform hands-only CPR, cardiac arrest victims may receive critical help from a trained county resident in the early stages of a medical emergency.
