CPR/AED Training
Five Five Alive logoWhen an adult goes into Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), his or her survival depends on immediately getting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from someone nearby. Eighty eight percent of all cardiac arrests occur at home or at work, so the chances of you knowing the person are very high.

According to the American Heart Association, nationwide less than 1/3 of those who suffer cardiac arrest at home, work, or in a public place receive CPR. As a result 400,000 people die each year in the U.S. Often, it’s because bystanders don’t know CPR!
