Free Public Service Announcements for Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month

EUGENE, Ore., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) and MEDIC First Aid, members of the Health & Safety Institute family of brands, offer a free public service announcement (PSA) for media outlets to educate the public about compression-only CPR.


The Push Here to Save a Life DVD contains 30- and 60-second PSAs showing correct compression-only CPR technique as well as information about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). October is national Sudden Cardiac Awareness month.

"Our instructors inspire us every day with their commitment to teaching emergency care," explains CEO Bill Clendenen. "Many of them came to the training industry because of a personal story of how they wanted to help someone in need but did not yet have the skills and knowledge to do so. Now they train hundreds of people a year in the simple steps that can make the difference between life and death. We're proud to make our PSAs available to them and to everyone to share with their local media contacts to help spread the word even further."

Watch this inspiring story from one of our ASHI authorized Instructors about why he became an Instructor.
