Here at Heartshield Project, we see the value in everyone having the knowledge to perform CPR, not just those who are certified. Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike at any time, and the more bystanders who have the knowledge, the more lives we will save as a community. Good Samaritan laws offer legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are injured, ill or otherwise incapacitated.
I strongly encourage everyone to become CPR/AED certified, which is why you can click the link below to schedule CPR/AED certification. For those who may not require CPR/AED training, my free CPR/AED demonstrations will give you the tools necessary to perform the cardiac chain of survival with proper CPR technique and AED usage.

WHAT IS AN AED?
Defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator (AED) is the only way to restart a heart. Hands-only CPR can be a bridge to life until an AED can be used to shock the heart back to life. Defibrillation with an AED is the only way to restore normal electrical activity to the heart and get it beating again. Sadly, there are too few public access AEDs, so bystander CPR is even more critical until EMS arrive.
HOW TO USE AN AED
