CSFD Offers Free CPR Training @ Fire Stations No. 2,5, & 6
May 25 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The College Station Fire Department is offering free CPR training Thursday as part of the World CPR Challenge, which is designed to teach compression-only CPR to as many people as possible in a single afternoon.

The 10-minute training sessions will be conducted from noon-6 p.m. at Fire Stations No. 2 (2200 Rio Grande Blvd.), No. 5 (1601 William D. Fitch Pkwy.) and No. 6 (610 University Dr. East). The training will not include mouth-to-mouth techniques and will focus on compression, which is considered the most effective element of CPR. No registration is required.

“Knowing effective CPR techniques can have a direct effect on your friends, family, and everyone around you,” CSFD Battalion Chief Greg Rodgers said. “If you’ve ever wanted to learn this life-saving technique but never seemed to find time, here’s your chance.” 

Sudden cardiac arrest affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year and is a leading cause of death. According to the American Heart Association, survival rates can double if someone administers CPR until emergency medical services personnel arrive.
