Fifth Annual CPR Blitz Takes Place in February
The second weekend in February will see the fifth annual "Save a Life, Great CPR Blitz" take place that Yakima Convention Center.
The event is put on by Davis High School along with six other major partners and is designed to help teach people how to save a life with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and how to use a defibrillator. Trainees will also learn to identify and deal with people who are choking or having a stroke.
There will be two sessions at the Feb. 8 event, one in English from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., and one in Spanish starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until noon. The organizers are hoping to train more than 1,000 people.
There is also an opportunity to learn how to train others, and people willing to share the knowledge they pick up at the event will receive a free AHA CPR Anytime Kit.
To learn more, contact Save a Life at (509) 574-5990 or www.savealifeyakima.org. The event is open to people who are middle school age and older.
