BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Media Advisory) — When seconds count, someone may be counting on a nearby friend, relative, neighbor, or county resident to provide Hands-Only CPR. Hands-Only CPR teaches civilians what to do to provide medical help to cardiac arrest victims before professional medical responders arrive. Residents can receive free Hands-Only CPR training in a 30-minute session at one of 19 fire stations (locations attached) located throughout Palm Beach County between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on February 14, 2015
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 help from a trained county resident in the early stages of the medical emergency.
Hands Only CPR 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. Residents wanting to learn Hands-Only CPR should wear comfortable clothing and bring a willingness to learn.
In Boca: 2233 West Glades Road, Station 5.
