Library hosts hands-only CPR training

The Emmaus Public Library recently sponsored a hands-only CPR course.

Craig Deppe and Tara Apgar from the Emmaus Ambulance Corps and Jeffrey Baker a member of the Emmaus Board of Health instructed approximately 15 participants in the correct way to administer hands-only CPR.

Hands-only CPR involves doing CPR compressions without the mouth-to-mouth breaths. According to a hand-out publicizing the event, “It [Hands-Only CPR] has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home.”

Q. What do you most enjoy about being a senior at Emmaus High School?
