Hands Only CPR & Stop The Bleed

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving emergency technique of administering chest compressions to a victim in cardiac arrest. Nationally, bystanders start CPR about 40% of the time. In Utah, the rate is much lower - about 20%. For every minute that CPR is delayed, a victim's chance of survival drops by 10%; if you wait even five minutes, the chance of survival is cut in half!

Hands-only CPR

Hands-only CPR does not require mouth-to-mouth. By simply administering chest compressions, you can save a life!

Stop The Bleed

In addition to hands-only CPR, the course includes life-saving techniques to stop bleeding.


Learn more by attending a hands-on class with the West Valley City Fire Department. Classes are held from 6 - 7 PM and from 7 - 8 PM, and include both CPR and Stop the Bleed.
