Be a Lifesaver. Hands-Only CPR Saves Lives.

The public is the first line of defense if someone has a cardiac event. Cardiac arrest is not uncommon, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year in the US alone. A person’s survival depends on how quickly CPR is administered. Immediate, hands-only can triple a victim’s chance of survival.
