I couldn’t be more excited to share with you this special message from Oregon’s Governor, John Kitzhaber, and Portland Fire & Rescue. This past spring while driving through downtown Portland, Gov. Kitzhaber spotted a person in urgent need of help. He acted quickly and stepped up to save their life by calling 9-1-1 and performing CPR. A former Emergency Room physician, Gov. Kitzhaber is familiar with lifesaving protocol. He also knows that you don’t have to be a doctor or a governor to save a life—with Hands Only CPR, any bystander can give someone they see collapse double to triple the chance of survival.
Step 1) Dial 9-1-1.
Step 2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
Everyone can and should learn Hands Only CPR—thanks for your help!
