Even if you don’t need to get CPR or First Aid certified for work, it’s such an important skill to learn for many other reasons.
The biggest threats to our loved ones are heart attacks and accidents, responsible for taking a life every 34 seconds.
Did you know that a person can survive for four to six minutes after their heart stops beating before they sustain brain damage from a lack of oxygen? But administering CPR until professional help arrives keeps the blood and oxygen flowing to the brain. That’s reason enough to be prepared to act.
Sadly, too many of our loved ones don’t make it through a heart attack. Learning CPR is fast, easy and worth the few hours it takes. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to do your best to be a hero.
