Community CPR Training

January 16, 2014

 

The Brewster Fire Department will be sponsoring a Community CPR Training program on January 16 at 6:00 p.m. The goal of the program is to enhance the Town of Brewster’s standing as a Heart Safe Community, provide vital life saving training to our residents, and increase the number of community members trained to a cardiac arrest.  Here are some interesting facts:

 

  • 385,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur on an annual basis.
  • 88% of these occur at home where limited emergency medical treatment may not be readily available.
  • Typically, only 8% of these victims survive
  • Immediate bystander CPR can double or triple a victim’s survival rate.
  • Learn the Cardiac Chain of Survival
    • Early recognition of cardiac emergency and access to EMS
    • Early CPR
    • Early Defibrillation
    • Early advanced care

 

Attendees at this three (3) hour training session will become certified in basic CPR and use of the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)

 

There will be a ten dollar ($10.00) charge for processing of the CPR certification cards.

 

Individuals interested in attending this training should call Fire Headquarters at 508-896-7018 to confirm your attendance.
