−Project Heart Start: Hands only CPR @ Larry B. Mitchell Recreation Center8:00 am – 11:00 am
Hands only CPR training for ages 12 and up. There will be three one-hour sessions: 8 am, 9am and 10 am.
Each session will teach a new form of CPR called Compression-Only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
Fourteen communities throughout the State of New Mexico will be participating in Project Heart Start on June 22. Facilitators will work with small groups using mannequins to teach proper chest compression. This is an ideal opportunity for families to learn a lifesaving technique together.
This training does not provide CPR certification, which is only achieved through the standard four-hour course.
Project Heart Start is organized by the New Mexico Heart Foundation, Albuquerque, New Mexico with New Mexico Heart Institute cardiologist, Dr. Barry Ramo as project Director.
Gallup’s event is sponsored by RMCHCS, The Gallup Fire Department, the McKinley County Fire Department and Gallup Med Flight.
