[ARCHIVED] Cranberry Township EMS Hosting Annual Save-a-Life Saturday

EMS_blue

Cranberry Township EMS will host its annual Save-a-Life Saturday event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cranberry Township Municipal Building in the Town Square. 

CPR instructors will be in the town square offering Free Hands Only CPR Training to community members from 10-11 a.m.

At 11 a.m., a Survivor Reunion provides an opportunity for patients that suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and survived to reunite with the bystanders who initiated CPR and the First Responders who responded. 

Surviving cardiac arrest is statistically rare and impossible without the quick response of bystanders and first responders. A few of the five survivors from the Cranberry Township area will participate in the ceremony.  

CPR instructors will be teaching the Hands-Only CPR course from the American Heart Association. Hands-Only CPR teaches participants to call 911 to get help coming and start chest compressions until EMS arrival. It is part of a national initiative to get as many people trained in CPR as possible to increase survival rates for out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.

There is no fee for the training, and all participants will receive a certificate of attendance for participating. No appointment is required, and the training only takes minutes to complete. 

Cranberry EMS aims to train at least 100 people in Hands-Only CPR to increase the number of people who know what to do if someone goes into cardiac arrest in the community.
