“As a paramedic we often go to people's homes where there's been a cardiac arrest and many times, we will find that citizens that know what to do. They've taken a quick CPR course like this and that doubles, if not triples the chance of survival,” said Paramedic Bob Elling.
The van will be in Albany until 3:30 p.m. afternoon. The CPR mobile van will be at the Harriman Campus in Albany, Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
