Fairview Hospital will sponsor a Bystander CPR clinic Thursday, July 25, 2019 at Lawrence Field in Canaan, CT 06018.
The free clinic is part of Family Fun Night which is part of Canaan Railroad Days.
Along with the Bystander CPR Clinic, there will be food for sale as well as a variety of kid-centric games.
Bystander CPR is the shortened version of the full three hour CPR course.
In five minutes, one can learn the chest compression technique to save someone’s life (the protocol no longer uses mouth to mouth resuscitation).
Medical personnel will be offering this vital instruction from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
For each person who learns Bystander CPR Thursday evening, sportingAcause.com will donate $5 to the Canaan Ambulance Corp, up to 100 people.
