Hands-only CPR class

Roseville firefighters are offering a free, hands-only cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) class on Wednesday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. The class meets at the Roseville Fire Station, 2701 Lexington Ave. N. Firefighters will teach an easy-to-learn hands-only CPR process. Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops and can no longer pump blood to the brain or vital organs. According to the American Heart Association, only about one in 10 heart attack victims survives. By using hands-only CPR, we may be able to improve those odds. Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by anyone who sees a person collapse suddenly. It can be used temporarily until professional help arrives. Call 651-792-7009 for more information.
