CPR Certification San Diego

CPR class & Certification

CPR Classes Are Not Just For Lifeguards

While there are many jobs that require CPR, we believe that everyone that is 16 years and older should be educated in pool safety. The large majority of America’s pools – both public and private – are not supervised by lifeguards.

Drowning Prevention

The CDC also reminds us that, “seconds count,” when it comes to saving a life, which is why it’s so important to learn CPR. Immediate, hands-on CPR performed by bystanders until EMTs or other emergency personnel arrive to the scene can make all the difference when it comes to preventing an unintentional death by drowning.

Drowning in residential pools is the second leading cause of accidental death around the home to children under five years of age. U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)  reported that 4200 children under the age of five are treated each year in hospital emergency rooms for submersion and near-drowning accidents in backyard pools.

CPSC urges pool owners to adopt the following safety practices:

  • Constantly keep your eyes on young children while at the pool;
  • Never leave young children alone in or around the pool;
  • If you leave, even for a few seconds, take the children with you.
  • Avoid confusion by always assigning one adult to watch young children who are in and around the pool.
  • Know how to administer CPR to a drowning victim before rescue help arrives.
