Hands-Only CPR Initiative

In an effort to increase the chance of survival for our citizens and visitors that experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, Algona EMS has launched an initiative to train as many citizens as possible in Hands-Only CPR. 


Anybody can be a hero.  If you see someone collapse, it is vital to their survival that you act immediately.  The American Heart Association has set simple guidelines that save lives. 


The video below shows how easy it is to provide lifesaving care:
