Be prepared for a medical emergency

Have you ever thought about what to do in the case of a medical emergency involving your friends and family? In a cardiac arrest emergency, for every minute CPR is delayed, a victim’s chance of survival decreases by 10%. In a bleeding emergency, a victim can die from blood loss in as little as 5 minutes. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be the first on the scene. Therefore, it’s up to you, as a bystander to begin the lifesaving process until we can arrive.

Beginning this year, Syracuse Fire Department will start offering Hands Only CPR and Stop the Bleed training free of charge to residents. These classes will give you the training needed to be the difference for someone you love, so please come and join us for our next class.
