During CPR Week, we encourage everyone to learn CPR - even our lawmakers. Eighty-eight percent of cardiac arrests occure at home - so knowing CPR can save the life of someone you love. Encourage your state lawmakers and Governor Daugaard to take the time to learn CPR and how to use the AED. CLICK HERE to send your message.
There are a few more things you can do to help promote this life-saving skill: 1) Learn Hands-Only CPR: Please visit www.handsonlycpr.org to review the two steps to saving a life: 1. Call 911 and 2. Push hard and fast at the center of the chest; and 2) Share this information with family and friends and encourage them to learn Hands-Only CPR and to contact their lawmakers.
Your role in promoting National CPR Week will help bring awareness to the American Heart Association’s educational and public awareness campaign and more importantly may someday save a life!
