Got an hour? Learn how to save a life. Roseville firefighters are holding two upcoming free classes on hands-only cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at the Roseville Library. Firefighters will teach an easy-to-learn hands-only CPR technique. They will bring mannequins for participants to practice hands-only CPR. The classes are Wednesday, May 1, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and Wednesday, May 8, from 7 to 8 p.m. The library is located at 2180 Hamline Ave. N. No registration is required.

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops and can no longer pump blood to the brain or vital organs. According to the American Heart Association, only about one in 10 heart attack victims survives. By using hands-only CPR, bystanders may be able to improve those odds.

Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by anyone who sees a person collapse suddenly. It can be used temporarily until professional help arrives. For more information call 651-792-7009.
