Campus Emergency Management: National Safety Month, CPR


The ability to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is a vital life-saving tool in many emergencies. In these safety tip videos, you will learn the steps to take before beginning CPR.

In the event that a co-worker needs assistance in an emergency situation: The most important thing to remember is don’t stand there, do something! If a person is not responding to you, call 911. If the person is not breathing, push on his/her chest. Whether you know how to do traditional CPR or not; whether you have a CPR certification or not, you just might save a life. Time is ALWAYS of the essence for action.

Each video is about 2, and 4 minutes long respectively and is not intended to certify you in CPR but provide an awareness to what do to even if you are not trained.

CPR, First Aid, and AED Training is available both online and physical courses, however, you may only be certified by a live trainer. Students must complete an in-person skills practice and testing session. Training can be garnered from a variety of sources such as the American Heart Association, and the Red Cross.
