Free CPR training at hospital

WHITTIER – Presbyterian Intercommunity Hospital in Whittier is offering free hands-only CPR training June 7 from 9 a.m. to noon.
CPR instructors will demonstrate the proper techniques of hands-only CPR.
Training will be done in 15-minute increments. Training will not result in CPR certification.
Nearly 300,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually and only 32 percent of victims get CPR from a bystander. Using hands-only CPR, bystanders can act to improve the odds of survival.
For more information about the free training, call Carole Snyder at (562) 698-0811, ext. 17684.
