Hands-Only CPR Challenge:Calling All High Schools!
South Metro Fire Rescue is thrilled to announce our Hands-Only CPR Challenge, created for all high schools within our district. At the heart of this initiative is our shared commitment to ensuring every high school student is ready to save a life should the time come. Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be just as effective as conventional CPR, and if performed immediately, can double or even triple the victim's chance of survival.
About 70% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur inside the home. If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, spouse, parent, student or friend.
Why Your Involvement Matters: As trusted educators, principals, and assistants, you hold a unique and influential position in the lives of our young learners. Your impact reaches far beyond the classroom, and you have the power to help us spread this initiative like no one else!
