Before attending this HC DrugFree event provided by the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services, I spent little time informing myself on the necessity of CPR. I would learn about CPR in school, but the details are hard to remember as the last time being taught it was around 3 years ago. This particular TAC meeting boosted my confidence that I can perform CPR in the future successfully.
From the general information about the difference from a cardiac arrest and a heart attack, all the way to specific knowledge about the different placements of AED on different age groups, I am certain that if given the opportunity to perform CPR on an individual, this class provided me with the correct and significant instructions to do so. I would highly advise teens and adults to learn CPR as it can be crucial in saving one’s life.
