Knowing cardiopulmonary resuscitation could provide immediate help to someone in need, says Australian Red Cross first aid trainer George Chapman.
“CPR, especially if performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can significantly improve the chances of survival,” Mr Chapman said.
Australian Red Cross has organised 19 CPR courses to be held in Dubbo during September. The courses are being run every Monday and Wednesday night from 6pm and twice on Saturdays at 8.30am and 1pm.
Mr Chapman is encouraging any Dubbo resident who doesn’t know CPR to attend one of the courses.
“You are never too old to learn and it could save the life of a loved one,” he said.
Bookings for the CPR training are being taken now. Phone 1300 367 428.
