Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home, because home is exactly where 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur. Put very simply: The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be someone you love.

We currently have 20 certified CPR Instructors through the American Heart Association. These instructors receive annual training with recertification requirements every 2 years. Our instructors instruct all freshman classes at both East and West High Schools—approximately 800 students—each year. They conduct CPR Recertification classes for all city firefighters and police officers. This team provides beginner and recertification classes for community medical offices, civic groups, Douglas- Cherokee clients, other school programs, daycares etc. They are a very busy group and are constantly in demand.
