TULSA, Oklahoma -

EMSA is inviting the public to attend one of two free, compression-only CPR training sessions on Wednesday, May 21, 2014.

The two events are:

  • Guthrie Green at 111 East Brady Street from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • After the Jenks Chamber of Commerce meeting at the Holiday Inn Express in Jenks on Aquarium Drive starting after 1 p.m.

This is National Emergency Medical Services Week and EMSA say compression-only CPR is easy to learn and perform.

EMSA says the simple procedure dramatically increases the chance a patient will survive a cardiac arrest. They say with compression-only CPR, bystanders can keep life-saving blood flowing through a person's body just by pressing on the chest in a hard, fast rhythm.

EMSA news release

Learning the process takes less than 10 minutes. EMSA says participants at each location will have an opportunity to practice compressions and ask questions.
