CPR Across America

Learn to save a life using only chest compressions

 

GOODYEAR, 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 option.

 

Join 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.

 

Training 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. 

 

For more information, contact Tanja Tanner, Community Education Coordinator, 623-882-7308 or tanja.tanner@goodyearaz.gov, or visit www.cpracrossamerica.org.
