For American Heart Month in February, the American Heart Association is encouraging everyone in North Central Florida to learn CPR.  

With more than 350,0000 people experiencing cardiac arrests outside of a hospital, including 23,000 children, CPR is a critical skill that kids as young as nine years old can learn. 

“If you are called to respond in a cardiac emergency, knowing CPR may save the life of someone you love,” said Shelby Bobbett, senior director at the American Heart Association, in a press release. “We are committed to extending the chain of survival in North Central Florida through education because the power to save a life is in each of our hands”.
