Why is CPR Training so Important?
In 2019, the City of Park Ridge Fire Department released a report showing over 5,000 incidents of Fire, EMS, Service, and Auto-Aid. Many of these incidents were life-threatening. The goal of CPR and First Aid training is to stabilize the injured person long enough for the professionals to arrive.
That brings us to response time. The Park Ridge Fire department also said that in 2019 the average response time for EMS was below the Illinois goal of 6 minutes (360 seconds), but not by much. The average response time was about 275 seconds or 4 1/2 minutes. Response times are measured from the time the dispatcher dispatches your call until the time the responders arrive on the scene. Without life-saving CPR or First Aid care, a person who isn’t breathing can experience brain damage and a person who may be bleeding can lose unsafe amounts of blood.
A person with an arterial bleed can bleed out in as little as 3 minutes. Arterial hemorrhage accounts for approximately 40% of deaths in a pre-hospital environment. We can train you to be able to stop life-threatening bleeding.
A person who stops breathing can experience permanent brain damage in as little as 4 minutes. They could experience death with 8-10 minutes of no oxygen. We can train you in safe methods of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to minimize the chance of death and maximize the likelihood of survival.
About Alpha Koncepts CPR Training Classes
Alpha Koncepts is a Licensed Training Partner of the American Red Cross. We utilize the American Red Cross in all of our CPR, First Aid, and AED classes. This includes the ARC FAST curriculum, which is an advanced “Stop the Bleed” first aid course.
The goal is to go home, and we can help you achieve that goal.
The Alpha Koncepts classroom is located in Park Ridge. In our classroom, students will learn life savings skills both with lecture and hands-on with various training aids including CPR mannequins.
We keep classes small on purpose. This is to ensure each student receives the necessary one-on-one time with your certified instructor. Our student-to-instructor ratio is well below the Red Cross standards, which is a great thing!
We offer free parking in our parking lot. That alone has tremendous value.
Your comfort is important to us. That is why in all of our CPR training classes, we offer free coffee and water to our students. We also have vending machines available for snacks and soda.
Each student who successfully completes the CPR Training class will receive a genuine certificate, valid for two years, directly from the American Red Cross. This training certificate meets OSHA workplace requirements and may provide “good Samaritan” immunity when rendering aid.
