CPR & First Aid
SCFD3 offers free "Hands-Only CPR" classes to the public. Hands-Only CPR is an easy, effective way for any bystander, especially if they act immediately, to double or triple a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival.
Why "Hands-Only CPR" ?
With 70 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happening at home, if you’re called on to perform Hands-Only CPR, you’ll likely be trying to save the life of someone you know and love.
Hands-Only CPR carried out by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as CPR with rescue breaths in the first few minutes during an out-of hospital sudden cardiac arrest for an adult victim.
Just a few hours of classroom and hands on skills could make a life saving difference!
