Hands-only CPR class in Roseville

Roseville firefighters are offering free, hands-only cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes each month. The next class will be on Jan. 17 at 6:30 p.m. Classes meet at the Roseville Fire Station. Firefighters teach an easy-to-learn two-step, hands-only CPR process.

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops and can no longer pump blood to the brain or vital organs. According to the American Heart Association, only about one in 10 heart attack victims survives. By using hands-only CPR, we may be able to improve those odds.

Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by anyone who sees a person collapse suddenly. It can be used temporarily until professional help arrives.

The Roseville Fire Station is located at 2701 Lexington Ave. Call 651-792-7009 for more information.
