The Norfolk Personal Injury Lawyers with the law firm of Lowell “The Hammer” Stanley know that when a person’s life is on the line as the result of an accident, rendering aide to the victim as soon as possible can mean the difference between life and death. That is why learning the skills that are necessary to saving a life is so important for all citizens to know.
Learning Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a basic skill that is necessary to reviving a person who has stopped breathing and whose heart has stopped beating. Being able to render this type of aide to an accident victim can prevent serious harm, such as Brain Injury from a lack of oxygen.
Those wishing to learn CPR can do so by participating in a course that being offered through the Adult Learning Center of Hampton Roads. Classes are also available through the Eastern Virginia Medical School, with the next training session being offered this coming Wednesday. During the 5-hour class, participants will learn how to perform CPR on both adults and children in accordance with guidelines provided by the American Heart Association. Students will also learn to use Automated External Defibrillators.
The attorneys with Lowell “The Hammer” Stanley recognize how vital these skills can be when put in a life or death situation. That is why the firm urges all who are available to attend one of these upcoming safety courses.
