Knowing how and when to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR could mean the difference between life and death during an emergency. In an effort to train Lee’s Summit residents in this life-saving procedure, the Lee’s Summit Health Education Advisory Board (HEAB) is offering a free, Hands-Only™ CPR training being held on Sat., Feb. 18, at the Gamber Community Center, 4 SE Independence Ave., Lee’s Summit.
Participants can choose from three, 45-minute sessions beginning at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m.
Individuals experienced in teaching CPR will conduct the training sessions that will include a brief video and mannequins to practice chest compressions. Registration is preferred and is available online for Hands-Only™ CPR training at www.LSparks.net or by calling (816) 969-1500. Space is limited; so sign up today. However, walk-ins will be permitted, if space is available. The day of the event all participants will receive a certificate and while supplies last a free T-shirt.
The Hands-Only™ CPR training was made possible due to Lee’s Summit HEAB’s partnership with the Lee’s Summit Medical Center, Saint Luke’s East – Lee’s Summit, Truman Medical Center – Lakewood, John Knox Village, the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, the Lee’s Summit Fire Department, Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation, and the City of Lee’s Summit; as well as the generous financial support of Baptist –Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation.
Please join us on Sat., Feb. 18 to learn this lifesaving technique which might one day save the life of someone you know and love.
