CPR Anytime Training – Goldenview Middle School, Monday, March 19, 2012
The CPR Anytime® Personal Learning Program allows families, friends and the general public – those who most likely would never attend a traditional CPR course – to learn the core skills of CPR in just 22 minutes.
All 8th graders in the Anchorage School District have participated in the CPR Anytime program over the past two years. Each student receives training in school, takes the kit home and trains five others. By the end of this school year, it is estimated that 30,000 people will be trained with the CPR Anytime Kit, including 10,500 students.
Goldenview Middle School will be conducting a CPR Anytime training session on Monday, March 19, 2012 at 9:10am. Students will have an opportunity to practice these skills on a personal manikin while watching an instructional DVD.
Funding for the program is made possible by Providence Alaska Medical Center and Alaska Heart Institute.

WHY LEARN CPR?
- 70 percent of Americans may be helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they do not know CPR or their training has significantly lapsed.
- If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save of the life of someone in your home: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
- 80 percent of cardiac arrests occur in the home. The life you save may be that of a loved one.
