In celebration of American Heart month in February, the Heart Care Team of Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care will provide a free CPR Anytime training session for the Merrill community.
This training will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Menard Center at Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center.
Educators from Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center will lead the CPR Anytime session. As a part of the program, each participant will receive a CPR Anytime Kit and be encouraged to bring the kit home to help train their friends and families.
Each CPR Anytime Kit contains a training DVD and a manikin, which inflates to practice ventilation and compression techniques that are part of performing CPR.
“The person who receives the CPR Anytime kit can continue to review and practice those techniques at home as well as share the kit with family members,” said Sharon Karow, CPR instructor at Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center.
This is a free program open to anyone interested in the community, but advanced registration is required by calling 715-539-5090.
