According to the American Heart Association, only about one in 10 heart attack victims survives. By using hands-only CPR, we may be able to improve those odds.Hands-only CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by anyone who sees a person collapse suddenly. It can be used temporarily until professional help arrives.The Roseville City Hall parking lot is undergoing renovations, so participants are asked park in the fire station parking lot. Enter off of Woodhill Drive and enter the fire station through the main door at the south side of the building. Call 651-792-7309 if you have questions.
