Plan for It: How to Perform CPR

Aug 27, 2018

If someone collapses in front of you, how would you respond? Being prepared allows you to take charge of the situation and potentially save a life. If you have not been professionally trained in CPR, or are a little rusty, hands-only CPR without rescue breaths is the way to go. Follow this guide to learn about hands-only CPR for teens and adults. Remember to always call 911 in a life-threatening emergency and follow the dispatcher's directions.
