Roseville firefighters are offering free, hands-only cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes at 6:30 on the third Wednesday of each month through next spring. The next class is November 15.
Classes meet at the Roseville Fire Station, 2701 Lexington Ave. North. Firefighters will teach a two-step, hands-only CPR process.
Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops and can no longer pump blood to the brain or vital organs. Only about one in 10 survives, according to the American Heart Association. By using hands-only CPR, we may be able to improve those odds.
Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by anyone who sees a person collapse suddenly. It can be used temporarily until professional help arrives. Please call 651-792-7009 if you have questions.
