Blair EMA Chief: CPR Training Should Be Routine

Blair County’s emergency management director says he would like to see more people become certified to perform CPR.
Dan Boyles cited a weekend incident where two Hollidaysburg High School football players were able to save a 68-year-old man’s life after he went into cardiac arrest. According to the American Heart Association, nearly 90-percent of those who fall victim to a heart attack don’t survive.
Boyles says the statistics could change in a big way if more people knew how to react to those types of situations.
He says Blair County routinely offers a two-day class.

The next course will be held in June. If you would like more information, call 940-5901.
