Time is truly important. It's important for your family, your friends, and for yourself. It's also critical when it comes to saving a life. Why not use time to your advantage? Begin by making a commitment to learn a very valuable skill which could make that all important difference between life and death.
The skill is known as CPR. CPR stands for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, a basic skill which provides mouth-to-mouth resuscitation in conjunction with chest compressions. This simple skill can adequately sustain the heart and lungs of a person who has fallen victim to a cardiac arrest.
CPR is easily learned and can be performed on anyone suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest. It only requires a few short hours of classroom work along with the practical applications to fully understand and perform CPR.
The Gurnee Fire Department is pleased to announce its continued participation in providing this unique and valuable training for the public. CPR classes are conducted monthly by paramedics qualified as American Safety & Health Institute CPR Instructors.
By receiving the appropriate knowledge and skills, we can all help to make a positive difference. Call today and receive this valuable life sustaining training before time runs out.
