The “Sidewalk CPR” training will train members of the community to provide a new form of CPR that requires only compressing a victim’s chest in cardiac arrest.
This life saving training will take approximately 10 minutes.
The free CPR training will be from 9 a.m.—4 p.m., on Thursday February 14 at Fire Station #2 located at 40060 California Oaks Road.
Last years emergency medical services response information has been compiled and the results have shown that return of spontaneous circulation after a person’s heart has stopped is over four times the national average.
This 32 percent return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) rate means that a person in Murrieta has a 1 in 3 chance of having their pulse come back after complete cardiac arrest where nationally, that same statistic is an estimated 7 percent.
The Murrieta Fire Department has made a commitment to providing outstanding emergency medical services by creating a response plan that includes many parts.
The first part of the plan requires an immediate response through rapid dispatch of strategically located medical crews on fire engines.
Highly trained paramedics using the latest technology and performing advanced medicine have also contributed to the success.
