Free Hands-Only CPR (July 4) Newnan area at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Yes, you can really learn life-saving skills before or after your BBQ dinner!  Try it out, at Dickey’s BBQ Pit, Thomas Crossroads, on July 4, 2014, from 11 am – 2 pm.   Whether or not you dine at Dickey’s – you get a free ice cream cone for learning something that might help a family member.

Over 383,000 people suffer cardiac arrest in the U.S. each year.  The two main things they need to survive is (1) a bystander performing CPR on them, ideally within 1 1.2 minutes, and (2) AED applied and a shock delivered within 4 1/2 minutes.  I love paramedics and EMT’s – they are awesome!  But please don’t think that calling 9-1-1 and waiting for EMS to arrive is going to help your friend, Dad, brother, wife, etc. survive a cardiac arrest.  Please learn the life-saving skill of CPR.  Since 2011, Hands-Only CPR is the preferred CPR method for the witnessed collapse of a teen or adult from apparent cardiac arrest.  What’s that mean?  In a nutshell, if they didn’t choke, drown, or have drug overdoes – then you don’t need to touch their mouth with yours (at least for 8-9 minutes).   Yea, we knew that mouth-mouth part was what you liked LEAST about doing CPR.   Free Restaurant CPR at Dickey's BBQ, by Newnan CPR
