Program Details from http://www.austintexas.gov/take10
Stands for “Take 10 minutes to learn compression-only CPR.” It is community-based and peer-taught CPR training that is simple, fast and FREE. Learners gain skill by practicing giving compressions and the confidence to act in an emergency.
Cardiac arrest is an all too common and deadly event. It can happen anywhere, anytime, to anyone. If more people know what to do (through programs like TAKE10), more people survive.
How is TAKE10 different?
