Students from Algoma High School hit a milestone recently in training people for the life-saving procedure called “Hands Only” CPR. As of last week, 3000 individuals have taken the training since the program began in 2015. The students who are in Erin Ballone’s Family and Consumer Education (FACE) class reach out throughout the community and beyond to teach people the proper technique for “Hands Only” CPR. Senior Courtney Guilette says it only takes a little time to learn this potentially life-saving technique.
Senior Leslie Wessel says the training has already paid off in the area.
The “Hands Only” CPR outreach by the Algoma High School Students is supported by the LIVE Algoma initiative. You can watch a video demonstration by Wessel and Sophomore Sydney Zimmerman below:
