A form of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) has been around since the 1700s, but many people today still do not know how to perform this life saving service. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 383,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually, and 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home.
Palm Beach Fire Rescue offers basic CPR and AED classes free of charge to residents and businesses within the Town. The department also offers CPR certification classes for a small fee. For information, contact the Department at 561-227-6436 or request a class or more information.
The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be someone you love.
