AEDAnd remember if you see someone collapse remember to:

  1.  Call 911
  2. Start chest compressions
  3. Send someone to get the AED

Something NEW is the dispatcher has skilled training in coaching you through the resuscitation process.

Pursue your passion ~ just because you can’t find someone doing it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue it.
