Attendees enjoyed a heart healthy breakfast and learned about the importance of ensuring all 911 dispatchers are trained and able to talk callers through how to perform CPR while they wait for EMS professionals to arrive.
Attendees listened to presentations from Kim Harkins (Minnesota Resuscitiation Consortium), Dr. Charles Lick (Allina), Buck McAlpin (Minnesota Ambulance Association) and Justin Bell (American Heart Association), Jamie Pedersen (Survivor) and Senator Tony Lourey. We wrapped up the morning with drop offs to legislators that included a cutout magnet of two step instructions on how to safe a life by doing Hands Only CPR.
