Hands-Only CPR


Cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States, and every minute counts when it comes to saving a life. The Grundy County Ambulance, Grundy County Health Department, and the Trenton Fire Department are partnering to offer a Hands-Only CPR class, which teaches participants how to perform CPR without mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.


The Hands-Only CPR class is a 30-minute session that covers the basics of CPR, including how to recognize the signs of cardiac arrest, how to call for help, and how to perform chest compressions. Participants will have the opportunity to practice these skills on a mannequin under the guidance of a certified instructor.


Hands-Only CPR is recommended for use on adults who collapse suddenly and are unresponsive. By immediately starting chest compressions, blood is circulated throughout the body, which can help maintain vital organ function until emergency medical services arrive.


The Hands-Only CPR class is open to the public and is suitable for individuals of all ages. The class is free; no registration is required.



Dates: Monday, June 5 at noon

Tuesday, June 6 at 5:00 pm
