Last week was National CPR Awareness Week and I wanted to ask for your help.
Too few Idahoans know how simple it is to learn and perform Hands-Only CPR—but with your help, we can change that.
Would you share this video PSA about Hands-Only CPR on Facebook? Educating your friends and family members is one of the best ways to spread the word.
SHARE THIS! Copy and paste this into your Facebook status:
WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO? Last week was National CPR Awareness Week and every person in Idaho should know Hands-Only CPR. Step 1: Call 9-1-1. Step 2: Push hard and fast in the center of the chest until help arrives. You could save the life of a loved one or a stranger. Watch this video and please share. #HandsOnlyCPR - http://youtu.be/n5hP4DIBCEE
Unfortunately, 90% of people that suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital don’t survive, and most people don’t know what to do in those emergency situations. But every person in Idaho can learn Hands-Only CPR in a few short minutes, and be equipped to save the life of a loved one or a stranger.
That’s why we worked so hard this year to make Hands-Only CPR a requirement for all high school students in Idaho. This requirement goes into effect for freshman staring school in the fall of 2015. That means thousands of new lifesavers will be in our communities starting in the spring of 2016 and that number will continue to grow every year.
If you’re not a Facebook user, you can still help! Just send out the message in an email to your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.
Thank you so much for your help.
