2 Step CPR Awareness - Learn more at Crawford County June Dairy Days

Did you know that seventy percent of cardiac arrests happen outside of the hospital? Less than fifty percent of those experiencing out-of-hospital cardiac arrests receive the proper help that they need until licensed help arrives on scene.

Sadly very few people who experience cardiac arrests survive; however, if proper CPR is performed immediately, the chance of survival can almost triple. Hands-only CPR is just as effective as traditional CPR, no matter where you are.

Learn two simple ways to save a life using hands-only CPR at:
