Don’t Take the Chance, Learn Hands-Only CPR

With the temperatures increasing this month, so are the odds of an adult suffering cardiac arrest. To ensure that your family is safe, Senator Kemp Hannon is joining with the American Heart Association to help spread hands-only CPR awareness.

“When someone goes into cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediate medical attention or CPR,” said Senator Kemp Hannon, Ranking Member of the Senate Health Committee. “People don’t realize that they can truly save the life of a loved one or a neighbor by just knowing the proper way to apply hands-only CPR,” Hannon continued.

Less than a third of people who experience cardiac arrest actually receive immediate aid. If you see a person collapse, immediately call 911. Then, use both hands to press hard and fast in the center of the person’s chest until medical professionals arrive.

Senator Hannon is encouraging everyone to please take the brief, but crucial time, to review the instructional hands-only CPR video at
