CPR Class Taught at F.O.R. Community Center
Posted on Jul 20th, 2012

EMT Bryan Jones with the Sweeny & West Brazos Emergency Medical Services, gave a presentation of the American Heart Association Heartsaver® CPR & AED training course, sponsored by Friends of the River San Bernard. Ten river residents participated in the hands-on training session on Tuesday, July 17. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)  is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. Use of an AED or automated external defibrillator, used in cases of life threatening cardiac arrhythmias which lead to cardiac arrest, was reviewed in the class.

Great technique Ange! I have taken many CPR classes and this one was one of the best. Thank you for volunteering your time Bryan (after performing your EMS duties the entire 24 hours before). We appreciate our EMS Services.
