CPR training open house offered by paramedics

Only 12 per cent of British Columbians who suffer a cardiac arrest survive.

Each year, B.C. Ambulance Service attends 2,400 to 2,800 cardiac arrest calls.

Bystander CPR can save lives.

In recognition of that, the public is invited to take 10 minutes to learn what’s involved with CPR by attending a short training session at the Westbank Lions Hall on Main Street.

It will take place Sunday, Dec. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Providing instruction will be Dave Sherman, West Kelowna ambulance service unit chief, and Brad Fraser, regional training coordinator with the Justice Institute B.C.
