Have a Summer CPR Party
What IS a Summer CPR Party?
Well, are there people that you love? Yes? Oh, then you should HAVE a CPR Party!
As you know, the 2-hour certified CPR class teaches people two main things
1) what to do if someone is choking and
2) how to correctly do chest compressions for someone unconscious and not breathing – as you await the arrival of 911.
A CPR Party is YOU gathering together your family and friends for the 2-hour class. As the 16-yr experienced Instructor, I arrive with my 3 sizes of mannequins and teach a great class for you. II am EasyCPR-Denver because I make class smooth, focused and with fun humor. After class, you have a fun social time, a party! A cook out? Playing games? Telling jokes to each other?
Student stories I’ve heard – both good and bad
I’ve been teaching CPR and Babysitting CPR youth classes (age 11+) for 16 years and, WOW, have I heard a lot of stories! Students like to share things that have happened in their family or to friends and neighbors. I think it’s great! Everyone in the class learns from the story that’s been offered. Sharing stories adds to retention of the skills they’re learning!
The topic is choking? I am told choking stories.
The topic is difficulty breathing? I am told breathing stories
The topic is injury due to falling? I am told falling/impact stories
“my uncle choked one time and…”
“my little sister climbed in the dryer to hide…”
“my mom fell off a ladder and…”
“my grandma could hardly breathe and we…”
“my neighbor’s house had a gas leak and…”
Most stories have happy endings – but some don’t.
My eyes grow huge when I’m told things like:
“my mom dug her fingers down my little brother’s throat when he was choking” (You don’t do that!)
“my friend told me you punch a hole in the throat if someone can’t breathe” (You don’t do that!)
“my uncle had chest pain so he went for a long jog” (You don’t do that!)
Are you ready?
So, there is an emergency at your home… Are you ready?
Have a CPR Party to become trained and confident. Nothing matches that feeling.
Is your babysitter or nanny more trained that YOU are? Are your teens trained? Do you know what to do if someone chokes? While everyone can choke, the people who choke most often are little kids and senior citizens. What if grandpa chokes?
How does it work?
Why do you do compressions? How does it work? WHY does it work? How does it help save a life? Do you give the person breaths – or not?
I’ll be happy to tell you!
I make class enjoyable and full of information and
skills practice that is easy to learn.

How you host a CPR Party:
- Pick a date for the 2-hour class – I reserve that date for you.
- I send you a link to send to your invitees so they can register/pay in advance. That way, class starts/ends on time. (Minimum 6 people, maximum 14)
- The day of class, everyone arrives and gets trained. Then you have a party!
Everyone feels confident and ready to save their loved ones.
