Salt Lake Regional Medical Center, Salt Lake City Fire Department, and Gold Cross Ambulance collaborate to bring compression-only CPR and safety education to the community at this year’s Utah Arts Festival. SLCFD and Gold Cross emergency medical technicians will teach multiple, 10-minute CPR training sessions to festival guests between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on the festival’s opening day, Thursday, June 20, and continue on until Sunday, June 23.

These training sessions are designed to be quick and accessible in order to teach as many people as possible the proper application of compression-only CPR. Additionally, festival guests are encouraged to stop by Salt Lake Regional Medical Center’s booth for water and any first-aid needs.

“Our goal is to make CPR less intimidating by educating the community. Gaining an understanding of how to react and help in an emergency situation is a priceless skill,” said Chad Carman, D.O. “As medical professionals, we want to equip as many people as possible with knowledge that can potentially save a life.”
