DID YOU KNOW

Once the heart ceases to function, a healthy human brain may survive without oxygen for up to 4 minutes without suffering any permanent damage.  Due to the varying EMS response time, it is critical to provide oxygenated blood to the victims brain.  Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) can provide oxygenated blood to the victim's brain and the heart, dramatically increasing the person chance of survival.  You can assist by knowing how to properly deliver CPR.  Tri-County Technical College, is an authorized training center, which offers a variety of courses properly training in the delivery of CPR.
