Free Bystander CPR Training Classes Open to the Public

Rosewood, Peabody June 17th 2pm
Devereux, Marblehead – June 23rd 2pm

Will be the sites of Free Bystander CPR training offered by Aviv HomeCare and Atlantic Ambulance. The program was developed to raise awareness that 75% of all sudden cardiac arrests happen at home and that being trained to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can mean the difference between life and death for a loved one.
Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. On average, only 27.4% of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR. Death from sudden cardiac arrest is not inevitable. If more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved.
Please take advantage of this great opportunity. Call Kim at 978.854.1860 to register.
