Learn Hands-Only CPR and Save a Life (EspaƱol)

Do you know the simple steps of Hands-Only CPR? Hands-Only CPR training teaches valuable lifesaving skills that can prepare you to properly respond in the event of a cardiac event. A cardiac arrest is when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. The heart stops beating properly when its pumping function is “arrested” or stopped. About 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, could double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

Hands-Only CPR focuses on the first few minutes following a cardiac arrest. A person’s chances of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest decreases by 10 percent every minute the brain is starved of oxygen. Bystander CPR can make all the difference in survival.  MCFRS is excited to be adding several new training and awareness programs. These programs are provided at no cost to the community and are designed to train the public how to help before first responders arrive on the scene. The courses are for general awareness training and do not provide any certification, recertification, or license.
