County Leading Push to Train Public on Easy to Learn, Life-Saving Skill

Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk announced today that public training will be offered across the county this Saturday on “CCR,” the new life-saving technique being used in only a handful of places across the country.  Training on “CCR,” or cardio-cerebral resuscitation, will be offered at 16 different sites Saturday, January 17th.  A full list of training sites is attached.

“CCR is easy to learn, easy to do, and is a proven life-saver,” Falk said.  “I took the training and it takes less than 15 minutes.  We want as many of our friends, neighbors, and co-workers to learn this innovative technique as possible.”

No registration is needed for any of this weekend’s trainings.  People are encouraged to just stop by any of the following locations.
