Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is a life-saving skill that everyone should have as you never know when you may need CPR to save a person’s life.

People die every day from cardiac arrest, drowning, smoke inhalation and other causes as a result of family members, friends and bystanders who do not know how to respond to an emergency situation effectively.

In the time it takes the emergency services to arrive to the scene, the victim’s chance of survival is rapidly decreasing. Often, it is too late which is why bystander CPR is so important.
