CSU-Pueblo Outdoor Pursuits, AMR partner to offer free compression-only CPR training

PUEBLO – In observance of National Emergency Medical Services Week, Colorado State University-Pueblo and American Medical Response (AMR) will offer free compression-only CPR training on May 22.

On Wednesday, May 22, CSU-Pueblo’s Outdoor Pursuits program and AMR will compete in the AMR World CPR Challenge, a free day of CPR training that attempts to teach as many people as possible how to save the life of a spouse, a child or neighbor using compression-only CPR. 

The trainings will be held at 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the Occhiato University Center Aspen Leaf Room.  Space is limited to the first 25 people per time slot.

Compression-only CPR is easy, less invasive and has the ability to keep a cardiac arrest victim alive during the precious minutes until first responders arrive.  This type of CPR can help save lives and is easy to perform.  The goal of the event is to save as many lives as possible and energize people about learning CPR by being part of this record-breaking event.
