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.
