Outreach & Education Quarterly Report 2015

Click title for the report download link.

I have been teaching CPR in all its varying forms since 1984. When I began teaching the survival rates were 2-5 % nationwide. If my loved one went down that is a far better chance than zero.

I thank you for being willing to put yourselves out by helping out for family, friends or strangers. Thank you, we are so blessed in this community.

Fair Winds,
