Life-Saving, Hands-Only CPR
Thursday, November 15
Join us at Nature Coast EMS headquarters on Thursday, November 15 to learn the potentially life-saving skill of Hands-Only CPR. Nature Coast Emergency Medical Institute instructors will teach participants toperform hands-only CPR if ever necessary.
|Hands-Only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting (such as at home, at work or in a park). It consists of two easy steps: 1.Call 9-1-1 (or send someone to do that). 2.Push hard and fast in the center of the chest. When you call 911, you need to stay on the phone until the 911 dispatcher (operator) tells you to hang up. The dispatcher will ask you about the emergency. They will also ask for details like your location. It is important to be specific, especially if you’re calling from a mobile phone as that is not associated with a fixed location or address. Remember that answering the dispatcher’s questions will not delay the arrival of help.
