Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) saves lives. In an emergency it can keep oxygen flowing to the brain and other vital parts of the body until medical attention is available.

If a person suffering from cardiac arrest (heart failure) receives CPR within the first two minutes, their chances of survival double.

While many buildings and public spaces now come equipped with AED (automatic external defibrillator) devices, there are many situations where they aren’t available or appropriate, and hands-only CPR is still the preferred method of first aid.

In this training session, you’ll learn the basics of CPR: why it’s necessary, when to use it, and how to perform it safely for both yourself and the recipient.

This training is offered by Raymond Marr from Rescue Breaths CPR Pittsburgh. Raymond is an American Heart Association certified CPR instructor. He has been a police officer for nearly a decade and has performed CPR many times in real-world emergencies.

Please note that this program is not an official CPR class, but rather an informational session for knowledge purposes. For completing the training, you’ll receive an unofficial certificate of completion, and you’ll have an opportunity to speak with the instructor about earning an official CPR certification.

To register, please call 412-531-8754 or email dormontprogramming@einetwork.net. Ages 18 and up are welcome, and there is a maximum of 6 participants per session.
