The LA County Department of Public Health is coming once a month, through December, to provide a Hands-Only CPR training.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
This month the session will be on Tuesday, August 22, at the Palisades Library. People do not need to sign up and can come anytime between 2 and 4 p.m. to learn this possibly life-saving skill. It only takes about 10 minutes to learn to do it.
Note: This is not a certified class, but a class that teaches a life-saving skill that may make a person feel more confident in responding to an emergency. The technique taught is only to be used on teens or adults.
Emergency swag is available to attendees. The Palisades Library is located at 861 Alma Real Drive, phone (310) 459-2754.
