Learn CPR During Your Lunch Hour!

Tuesday, January 18, 2022, 12 pm

Join the American Heart Association for a Hands-Only CPR demonstration! When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby. About 90% of people who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital die. However, receiving CPR can double or triple the victims chance of survival!

We’ll share the story of a young West Michigan resident whose life was saved by CPR. Do you have the confidence to perform CPR if needed?

Through our free Virtual CPR Demonstration, you can learn how to perform this lifesaving skill and also hear from survivors who have experienced a need for CPR first hand.

We would like to extend a special thank you to Consumers Credit Union for sponsoring this event.

This is a Friends and Family course and will not be suitable for professional training needs.

Note: You must register via the ZOOM link to get details for the event.
