CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest. If a cardiac arrest happened to your loved one or a close friend, would you know how to perform life-saving CPR?  Surprisingly, the vast majority of Americans don't.  About 80 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in private residential settings, so being trained to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can mean the difference between life and death.  Not too long ago one of our island residents completed a CPR training course and within weeks was confronted  by this very situation.  Without hesitation she put into practice the life-saving knowledge and techniques she had learned which helped to save the life of her husband.  Would you be so prepared?  Call your local Fire Station to inquire about their next CPR class and be ready to save a life! 

Live Gently and be Blessed!
