Sidewalk CPR

Sidewalk CPR Demo 2024 LACoFD

During National Heart Month in February 2024, our chest pain coordinator, Tammy Freehling, RN, joined the Los Angeles County Fire Department Station 182’s Captain Brandon Comfort, Engineer Elmer Torrez; and Firefighter Tanner Osterkamp, to demonstrate Sidewalk/Hands-Only CPR and use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). Learning these lifesaving measures is quick and easy. With nearly 75% of cardiac arrests occurring in the home, according to the American Heart Association, it is important for everyone to learn Sidewalk CPR and AED use.
