Free CPR Classes in Kennewick

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- CPR is a valuable skill to know and it could save a life. People of all ages took advantage of free CPR classes Saturday at Ranch & Home in Kennewick.

Kennewick General Hospital CPR instructors taught the classes with dummies to give people a hands on learning experience.

The class included adult and baby CPR techniques.

"If CPR is started for an individual before an ambulance gets there, their chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest or a heart attack is much, much greater and their quality of life is also saved," said Lancene Lamson, CPR instructor.

Kennewick General Hospital offers a variety of health education classes.

Lamson says the classes at Ranch & Home are a success and she hopes for more classes in the future.
