Action Tips: Learn CPR and Get Certified


Do you babysit young children? Are there young children in your family?

Choking and suffocation are the most common causes of preventable death in children under 1 year of age and the fourth most common cause of death in children under 14 years of age.

Do you have elderly parents or grandparents who are at a greater risk for heart disease, heart attacks or strokes?

About two-thirds of deaths from heart attack occur before the victim reaches the hospital.

Many of these deaths can be prevented if the victim receives prompt help - if someone trained in CPR provides proper life-saving measures until trained professionals take over. You can be the difference!

Contact your local American Red Cross or the American Heart Association to find out how you can learn.
