Little Rock Fire Department to offer free CPR class

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 31, 2015) – The Little Rock Fire Department is introducing an initiative to teach residents basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills for use in emergency situations

The “Put Me in Chief” program will hold a free CPR class from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Little Rock Fire Training Facility at 7000 Murray St. The class includes a demonstration on how to provide primary emergency response in the event of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

Data provided by the American Heart Association show that roughly 70 percent of Americans feel helpless during a cardiac emergency because they either don’t know how to administer CPR or their training has lapsed. Additionally, some people are afraid they will hurt the individual in distress if they try to administer CPR.
