Learn to save a
life using only chest compressions
ARIZ. (Sept. 17, 2010) Many would-be heroes who might refrain from performing
CPR because they are reluctant to have mouth-to-mouth contact have a new
us for CPR Across America from 1:00 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3 at Goodyear
Ballpark. This family-friendly event is free and open to all ages. There will
be demonstrations, displays, and raffle items, including two sets of tickets to
the November NASCAR race at Phoenix International Raceway.
for Continuous Chest Compressions CPR will be offered at 1:30 p.m. 2:15 p.m.
and 3:00 p. m. This hands-only form of CPR is part of a campaign to teach
a life-saving skill, but is not a certification course.
Be part of American history as 500 durable manikins begin a
two-year journey across the United States. The goal is to motivate communities
to train 10 percent of their population in the Hands-Only CPR technique.
