San Diego Project Heart Beat to host “Heroes in Training” CPR workshop for youth at Petco Park

It’s never too early to learn basic life-saving methods, especially CPR. The Heroes in Training event takes place tomorrow and is helping kids and their parents practice this essential skill.

Program Manager Maureen O’Connor visited the studio on Saturday with some volunteers to talk about the event and demonstrate the technique.

Fifty youth ages 8 to 15 will receive two tickets to the Sunday Padre game for themselves and a guardian. Prior to the game beginning at approximately 10:30am all fifty youth will be led through a “hands-only” CPR training with an introduction to the AED. This event helps to support the mission of the regional San Diego Project Heart Beat program to educate society simply on recognition and best response to Cardiac Arrest.

Project Heart Beat has one main goal: to save lives through early defibrillation. San Diego Project Heart Beat’s objective is to make Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) as accessible as fire extinguishers throughout our community. San Diego Project Heart Beat was created to increase the survival rates for victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest throughout San Diego County. The program was designed to offer all public and private businesses and organizations every element possible to implement these life-saving programs affordably, easily and successfully. Offering the best quality assurance for their individual site programs.
