AMR Spokane wants you to learn CPR, and on May 22nd they'll train you for free.
AMR Spokane is joining American Medical Response teams across the nation to train as many people as possible in compression-only CPR. In partnership with Spokane Fire Department, Providence Health Care and Spokane Heart Rescue, AMR instructors will be teaching this life saving skill all day on May 22nd at the Spokane Arena.
"While first responders often arrive on the scene of an emergency within minutes, we want to remind everyone that during a cardiac arrest, seconds can be critical," said Cathy St. Amand, Training Coordinator of AMR Spokane.
Compression-only CPR only takes a few minutes to learn and can help keep a cardiac arrest victim alive until first responders can arrive. AMR hopes that this event will help make the community a safer place to live.
You can learn compression-only CPR at the Spokane Arena on May 22nd from 6am-7pm.
