Seconds count in an emergency. The communities of Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls are encouraged to participate in one of two FREE hands-only CPR classes at HSHS Sacred Heart and HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospitals.

These classes will teach you how to perform hands-only CPR to help deliver life-saving care until professional responders arrive.

HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals’ training center coordinator, Peggy Pendergast said CPR can double, even triple a person’s chance of survival. “Cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, at any time, so being prepared is easy,” she said. “Being familiar with the process makes the situation less intimidating if you ever find yourself in a position to help someone. You never know when it could be your own loved one you are able to help.”

HSHS Community Health will host these free events:

  • Saturday, February 22, 10 a.m. in HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital’s Monsignor Klimek Auditorium on the lower level, 900 W. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire
  • Saturday, February 22, 1 p.m. in HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital’s McDonald Hall on the lower level, 2661 County Hwy. I, Chippewa Falls.

Refreshments will be provided. To register, call 715-717-7300 or visit: www.sacredhearteauclaire.org/Event-Management/Hands-Only-CPR or www.stjoeschipfalls.org/Event-Management/Hands-Only-CPR.
