On May 18 and 21, in observation of National Emergency Medical Services Week, Rural Metro, the Knox County Emergency responder and its parent company, American Medical Response (AMR) and its operations across the country will train thousands of people to save lives through compression-only CPR. Compression-only CPR is easy to learn and has the ability to keep a cardiac arrest victim alive until paramedics arrive.


Everyone in Knox County has an opportunity to receive this important training absolutely free. It takes only 15 minutes or so and is being offered at locations across Knoxville and Knox County. Everyone is invited to attend. No reservations are needed; people can just stop by.
