Free CPR offered today
On Thursday, May 18, at Delaware Technical and Community College, Georgetown, Sussex County EMS in cooperation with Delaware Technical Community College, the American Heart Association, Shore Emergency Educators, and Nanticoke Memorial Hospital will be offering free CPR.
An important difference in the overall outcomes of victims who suffer from cardiac arrest is whether or not someone performs bystander CPR prior to arrival of EMS. This free instruction will be held in the Carter Partnership Building from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and from 5 to 9 p.m. Anyone with questions can call the Sussex County EMS Paramedic Office at 854-5050.
