CPR training

Fire and nursing departments at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility participated in a “Hands-only Sidewalk CPR” event on June 7 as part of National Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Week.
The event – offered in collaboration with Chula Vista Fire Department, the YMCA, California Correctional Health Care Services, and San Diego County Emergency Medical Services – taught the lifesaving techniques free to almost 300 participants, ranging from young children to senior citizens
“Since the participants cared enough to make the time to learn this valuable skill,” explained one of the firefighters, “then how could we not care enough to teach them.”
