Rapid initiation of CPR is critical to help someone survive sudden cardiac arrest. Time is of the essence during Sudden Cardiac Arrest and more people can survive with a bystander, family member or co-worker initiating CPR and utilizing an AED immediately when someone suddenly collapses unconcsious and unresponsive. Hands-Only CPR is an option for those not knowing how to perform CPR with ventilations. The bottom line is: Everyone should know CPR! Emergency Training Associates can assist with all of your training needs. 218-998-2939 or
