Free CPR training offered May 22 at Concord Campus by CC County
- May 21, 2013 11:00am
Cal State East Bay's Concord Campus will be one of three locations in Contra Costa County offering hands-only CPR training on Wednesday, May 22.
The training, which is free, will be offered from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Concord Campus, located at 4700 Ygnacio Valley Road. The public is invited to the training.
The training is part of the HeartSafe Community program, a public education effort led by Contra Costa Health Services' Emergency Medical Services (EMS) division.
"Hands-only CPR is almost as effective as traditional, mouth-to-mouth CPR when performed by a non-expert," said Joe Barger, Contra Costa EMS director. "It can triple a victim's chances of survival, and it takes most people less than five minutes to learn."
