Safety Council Recommends CPR Certification

Posted: Updated:

The summer usually means spending time outdoors at the lake and swimming pool.  But, while you're having all that fun, you need to be prepared for the worst. That's why the North Dakota Safety Council says it's important for everyone to be certified in CPR.

If someone is not breathing, response time is key to saving lives. When response time is quick with chest compression, it keeps the blood pumping through the heart.

"Victims have 40-70% or double or triple their chance of survival.  If they are having an illness, there may be complications just beyond resuscitation," says North Dakota Safety Council Consultant Michael Meschke.
