Compression-only CPR taught in Modesto

May 21, 2014 

As part of American Medical Response’s nationwide observance of National Emergency Medical Services Week, coaching on compression-only CPR was offered Wednesday at Tenth Street Place in Modesto, as well as several fire stations and a church. Compression-only CPR allows bystanders to keep lifesaving blood flowing through a victim’s body just by pressing on the chest in a hard, fast rhythm. The free training was offered from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The cooperative effort by AMR, the Turlock Fire Department and Modesto Regional Fire Authority instructed 206 people.
