When someone becomes ill or injured there is usually
a short period of time before you can get professional
medical assistance. It is that length of time that
is most critical to the victim.
What you do, or don't do during that period of time
can make the difference between life and death.
By having some first aid training and knowing Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) you can have a major impact to
the successful outcome of a medical emergency.
Does your household or place of employment have a
well stocked first aid kit? Keep your kit in a location
that is well known to other family members or co-workers.
Contact the American Heart Assn. or the American
Red Cross to obtain information on CPR classes.
