The Mobile CPR Project
The Mobile CPR Project is a public health initiative that was created to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest. To do this, we travel to churches, schools, shelters, and community organizations to teach CPR to local citizens. This program is supported by the City of Hartford and other partners such as the three local hospitals, the fire department and the police department.
What puts the “mobile” in The Mobile CPR Project?
CPR training usually costs money and can take up a lot of time. It can also be difficult to find someone that teaches CPR. Our mission is to bring CPR to the citizens of Hartford at no cost. So how do you learn CPR? Contact us! We can schedule a training for you. We only ask that we have more than 10 people per training. This way, we train as many people as we can at once.
Our number one goal is to train you how to recognize a cardiac arrest and to learn CPR. Learning CPR can keep you and your family safe. Most of the time when someone experiences a cardiac arrest, it is in their home. If your family member experiences a cardiac arrest the best thing you can do is perform CPR, it can save their life!
Cardiac arrest and CPR:
Cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating. This is different from a heart attack. Cardiac arrest can strike anyone at any time and most of the time it is fatal. As scary as this is, the best way to keep someone alive when their heart stops beating is to do CPR. A new form of CPR called Hands-Only CPR teaches people to do compressions without rescue breathing. This means you are no longer required to breathe for a victim, just use your hands to keep their heart pumping.
