Free CPR Training!
According to the American Heart Association, 70% of people feel helpless in the event of a cardiac emergency. It is at home where 80% of cardiac arrests occur. These events oftentimes have no warning signs and can happen to anyone. The danger is real.
To confront these very real statistics, four saved lives here in the Gallatin Valley have joined forces to initiate the Gallatin Heart Rescue Project. A partnership between Bozeman Deaconess Cardiovascular Training Center, Absarokee Emergency Physicians, and all Gallatin County law enforcement/fire agencies has brought together the community in order to offer hands-only CPR classes open for all those interested in learning CPR. The first class is Monday, February 20th at the Gallatin Valley Baptist Fellowship in Manhattan, MT.
Gallatin Heart Rescue Project’s goal is to educate 5,000 residents of the Gallatin Valley to ultimately increase the valley’s cardiac arrest survival rate.
