Did you know that effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival? Unfortunately,so few people are equipped to perform CPR that only 32% of victims receive the immediate CPR needed until first responders arrive to help.
The Columbus Chapter did something to change that. On June 15th we invited Chapter Members to become CPR Certified for free for our June Unified Promise.
We are so excited by the turnout for this event, where 18 individuals were able to become CPR certified. Chapter Members were able to learn CPR, AED usage and other life saving skills such as the heimlich maneuver. A big thank you to our instructor, Chris Biasella, for being such an excellent teacher.
By getting 18 individuals CPR certified we have given them the tools and knowledge to save a life in the future!
