SAN RAMON, CA - For the second year CPR went to Sacramento! The San Ramon Valley HeartSafe Community program in partnership with Assembly Member Joan Buchanan taught over 75 people CPR and the proper use of an AED.
On Wednesday, February 27 members of the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District and the San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Citizen Corps Council's HeartSafe Committee traveled to the Capital to teach "hands-only" CPR.
"The HeartSafe Committee is honored to have been invited, by Assembly Member Joan Buchanan, to teach this life saving skill to all Assembly members and their staff," said Captain Andy Swartzell, EMS Coordinator for the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District. "Saving a life has never been easier, everyone should learn hands-only CPR."
The HeartSafe Community Committee is made up of representatives from the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District, the City of San Ramon, the Town of Danville, The San Ramon Valley Unified School District, Contra Costa County Emergency Medical Services and many committed community members. The mission of the group is to insure that all elements of the Chain of Survival are in place throughout the San Ramon Valley and to encourage resident to learn CPR and for local businesses and community building to provide public access AEDs.
