Learn CPR

August is Drowning Impact Awareness Month

The DPCA has partnered with SRP to provide mouth-to-mouth CPR classes across the valley during the month of August.

For adults, learning CPR can make the difference between life and death. CPR is especially critical in cases of child drowning emergencies, because immediate restoration of oxygen to the child’s brain is critical.

Many believe that the process of learning or refreshing CPR also renews the importance of other water safety efforts for parents, such as supervision and fencing.

Be sure to post CPR guidelines near your pool, in case of an emergency.

CPR skills should be refreshed yearly, with certifications renewed every two years. Keeping up with new guidelines and medical findings can be confusing, but an annual refresher helps keep all the facts clear.


This list is intended to provide a broad range of options for CPR instruction. Remember to renew CPR skills regularly, and post CPR instructions near your swimming pool area.
