Free H.O.P.E. CPR Training Offered 7/31 at 5:30 PM, Registration Required

Meyer CPR & First Aid Offers HOPE!

Ceres, July 31, 2014 - Offered free to the community, H.O.P.E. provides Hands On Practical Experience in a simplified form of CPR using only chest compressions (no mouth to mouth breaths). Chest compression only CPR has been shown to be as effective as regular CPR. For those who suffer cardiac arrest outside of the hospital, the chance of survival is less than 10 percent. Brain damage can occur in four minutes and for every minute without CPR, the chance of survival goes down by 10 percent.

H.O.P.E. is a positive educational experience designed for anyone who desires to learn this potentially live saving skill, children attending school, family members and friends or members of our local, education, business, or religious communities. Thousands of people have already participated in H.O.P.E. training nationwide. This is your invitation to join them in the goal of saving as many lives as possible! H.O.P.E. will be offered on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. at the Ceres Community Center.

H.O.P.E. is free, but registration is required. To register, please contact Traci Farris (209) 538-5682 or email

H.O.P.E. is a partnership in community health and welfare between the American Safety & Health Institute, Fairfield Medical Center and the Gordon B. Snider Cardiovascular Institute. H.O.P.E. was originally created by Becky DeVoss, RN, M.S.H.A. Participation in H.O.P.E. does not result in certification and is not appropriate for individuals who are occupationally required to be certified in CPR, AED or professional level basic life support.
