Are you ready to save my life?

By Rachel Brockway, Class 23
Scottsdale Leadership Marketing and Resource Development Manager

As leaders in our community, we continually attend events and activities where many people are in attendance. Would you know how to respond if one of these people goes into cardiac arrest? Could you save them? New CRP methods have a much higher success rate and are hands only which means it is  not mouth to mouth. The Scottsdale Fire department, celebrating its fifth anniversary on July 1st will be offering 13 free hands only CPR presentations delivering rapid chest compressions.

When I attended Public Safety day as part of Scottsdale Leadership the main thing I remember is not to worry about hurting a person when you do CPR; because you can’t hurt someone who is dead! A person in cardiac arrest is already clinically dead. ..but you can change that!

Advance registration for these classes will be required, as space is limited. To view the dates and times for the CPR classes and to sign up, visit www.scottsdaleaz.gov/fire/HandsOnlyCPR or call (480) 312-8000.

Remember you can save a life!
