Free Hands On CPR Class Wednesday at Copper King Hotel
Even though we just wrapped up the NFL season, the image of the Buffalo Bills Lamar Hamlin collapsing on the field and being carted off by ambulance remains a fresh memory. First responders, such as the ambulance crew on hand, proved that day, in front of a national television audience, that emergencies come unexpectedly and quickly. Had it not been for the CPR administered by first responders we could have very well have witnessed the NFL's first on field death.
Thankfully it did not come to that but the question it raised was evident. If you ever found yourself in a life or death situation, like the first responders did, would you have the knowledge you needed to handle it? Figures show that more than 300,000 cardiac events happen every year in America with a full 70% occurring inside of homes. Furhtermore, 90 percent of those suffering a cardiac episode will die before reaching the hospital. Would you be able to help in that situation? Butte Auto wants the answer to that question to always be a resounding "yes" and they are hosting a free and open to the public CPR clinic this Wednesday at Butte's Copper King Hotel. Classes will be in the ballroom and will be offered at 11:00am, 2:00pm and 4:00pm where you will be taught how to recognize early signs of a heart attack or a stroke and basic life support.
Signing up is not necessary. Those wishing attend are asked to meet at the Copper King Hotel. Each class is expected to last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
