It’s a beautiful summer afternoon; your entire family and friends are over enjoying a Sunday barbeque. The grill is fired up, the kids are running through sprinklers and the pool is a cool relief against the sun’s rays. It’s the quintessential perfect day…right until your friend Steve jumps of the diving board and hits his head before going under the water. Panic ensues. The actions you take in the following minutes could decide Steve’s life.
CPR is used in the event of a heart attack or a near drowning where someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped and learning it is a must for everyone. The chest compressions and rescue breathing used during CPR keeps oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and other vital organs until medical help arrives to restore a normal heartbeat. If the heart stops, the lack of oxygenated blood can cause brain damage within minutes and death quickly after.
You never know when an accident will arise; whether it’s a family member, a friend, or a random strange—knowing CPR gives you the capability to save a life. 25% of all emergency rooms visits could be avoided if CPR was used immediately after an accident or heart attack.

Luckily, you took a CPR and First Aid training class with the Life Saver Team just weeks before your Sunday barbeque. After fishing Steve out of the water, you were successfully able to deliver CPR and give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Steve is alive, well and still coming to Sunday barbeques thanks to you and the skills passed on to you by the Life Saver Team.
