Sidewalk CPR

May 18

Event Title

Sidewalk CPR

Sidewalk CPR Day is set for Thursday, May 18!  The goal of this Southern California campaign is to train approximately 4,000 citizens in “Hands Only CPR,” thus increasing the number of lifesavers in our community. Sudden cardiac arrest kills over 1,500 San Diegans each year and medical science has proven that community based CPR programs, designed to teach bystander CPR, has a direct impact on cardiac arrest survival.
 
On May 18, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m., Heartland Fire & Rescue personnel will provide free Sidewalk CPR training in Center Court. This life-saving effort is sponsored in conjunction with San Diego County Health and Human Services, the American Red Cross, the American Heart Association and San Diego Project Heartbeat.
 
Trained personnel will educate the citizens on when to call 9-1-1, when to use CPR, and how to provide Hands Only Sidewalk CPR, showing them where to place their hands, how deep to push and the rate of compressions.
 
Educational material about Sidewalk CPR will be distributed at the event with a request to pass this life-saving information onto family and friends.
