Community CPR and First Aid Open House

By Chief Mandy Purdy
February 18, 2017

More than 350,000 people in the United States suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year and just 12 percent survive. However, statistics show that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene.

The Ridge Volunteer Rescue Squad is sponsoring a Community CPR session to introduce you to CPR and First Aid skills. We will perform short CPR and First Aid examples; describe what to do in the event a loved one, friend or co-worker suddenly collapses. These sessions will provide hands on CPR and First Aid lessons, we will describe what to expect when you dial 911 and when the first responders arrive.

These are not full certification classes, they are skill sessions that introduce you to the basics and will allow you to provide assistance to a person in need. All ages are welcome, if you can dial 911 you can save lives!

Come by our open house anytime between 1000-1200 on February 18th and learn basic first aid and CPR.

Learning how to save a life will change yours so we hope to see you there!
