Stroke is the leading preventable cause of disability. It strikes every 40 seconds and about 80 of clot related strokes may be preventable. If stroke does strike, spotting stroke and getting treatment fast may make the difference between life and death -- or the difference between a full recovery and long-term disability (AHA/ASA 2018).

Learn Hands Only CPR!
Watch the awareness video, learn the beat, and practice this lifesaving skill! It only takes 60 seconds to learn to save a life! According to the American Heart Association, each year over 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States.
We help the American Heart Association to raise awareness and numbers of people trained to help increase bystander response rates in cardiac emergencies. By 2020, the AHA aims to train 20 million people in the lifesaving skills of CPR and want to double the out-of-hospital bystander CPR rate, from 31% to 62%. To help the AHA to achieve these goals we participate in community events to teach Hands-Only CPR. These CPR awareness trainings are reported to the AHA.
Join us in celebrating CPR Week June 1-7! On December 13, 2007, Congress unanimously passed a resolution to set aside June 1-7 each year as National CPR and AED Awareness Week to spotlight how lives can be saved if more Americans know CPR and how to use an AED. In the declaration, Congress asked states and municipalities to make AEDs more publicly accessible.
