Simple CPR Guidelines

The Plano Fire Department is actively promoting the American Heart Association’s new hands-only” CPR method within the public. No more rescue breaths and counting compressions. This two-step hands-only method is now easy enough to teach large groups of people effective CPR in less than 10 minutes. PFRA is teaming up with PFD in demonstrating and teaching the new CPR method at all of our public education and fire safety events.
