Last week we finished up our very successful summer hands only CPR season. We were blessed this summer to have 3 fabulous interns. They taught over 40 classes and 700 citizens in Louisville, KY hands only CPR. Our focus for teaching in the summer is in community centers, churches and area businesses. We also did some brief hands only CPR demonstrations at the Dirt Bowl basketball tournament and at a Louisville FC soccer game. This was truly a great teaching season that moved our total number of people taught hands only CPR at over 17,000 since we started.
This year Kentucky became the 29th state to mandate hands only CPR education for high school students prior to graduation. We went out last week and taught Jefferson County Public Schools health and physical education teachers about cardiac arrest and gave them our hands only CPR class. Because of the new state law our services have been highly sought after and we are full for the fall teaching period. We have started preparing for the upcoming teaching period with 2 teams of instructors. We are getting our new instructors ready to start this week. This is what our basement looks like in preparation. It is going to be a busy fall teaching.
