CPR: Push to help save a life

It only take seconds to learn CPR

Newmarket – November is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) month and paramedics from The Regional Municipality of York are teaching students from the City of Markham to push their knowledge, push their confidence and push to save a life by learning CPR.

According to the Canadian Red Cross, less than half of Canadians say they have the skills to help in a life-threatening emergency.

Media are invited to join York Region Paramedic Services at Thornhill Secondary School as they teach students how to perform hands-only CPR and show how CPR is used during emergency care.
