TCVFRA Co Sponsors CPR Training

February is National Heart Month.  TCVFRA is proud to join with the Talbot County Department of Emergency Services to provide a day of CPR and AED training for non healthcare personnel.

A key link in the chain of survival for an individual who has suffered cardiac arrest is high quality CPR administered as soon as possible after the attack. Bystanders, trained and willing to help, are critical to this link.

Come to the Talbot County Community Center on February 24 between 9AM and 7PM to learn how you can save a life.

The link below will download a flyer on this event. Please share this as widely as possible.
