The American Heart Association wants you to learn Hands Only!

I'm CPR and first aid certified although my certfication is up in a few weeks. Until I can get re-certified it's great to know that organizations like the American Heart Association are sharing ways to help you save a life.

Help The American Heart Association and Go Red For Women® save lives!  Learn Hands-Only CPR®.  

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and Go Red For Women urges you to
join in our mission to help save lives.

Here's a startling fact:   70 percent of Americans don't know how to administer CPR.  Because of this, they may be helpless to act during a cardiac emergency.  And, because 80 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home or at work, the life you save with CPR will most likely be that of someone you know and love.
What can you do?  See a video. Save a life.  Learn how to perform Hands-Only® CPR by watching a simple 1-minute video at    

I've embedded the video so you can watch it here!
