Learn Hands-Only CPR to help save the life of a loved one

Lemont Fire District is encouraging the public to learn the American Heart Association’s “Hands-Only CPR.” This simple way of performing CPR has proven to be very easy to do and effective for the victim. Hands-Only CPR does not require mouth-to-mouth and simplifies the cardio-pulmonary resuscitation process for an adult in cardiac arrest.

The American Heart Association has found Hands-Only CPR to be as effective as conventional CPR for sudden cardiac arrest at home, at work, or in the public – doubling or even tripling a victim’s chance of survival.

Since 80% of cardiac arrests happen in private or residential settings, learn these simple steps for performing Hands-Only CPR to possibly help save the life of a loved one:

  • Call 9-1-1 immediately.
  • Place hands, one on top of the other, in the center of the person’s chest.
  • Begin compressions, pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest.
  • Keep doing compressions until help arrives.

Visit the American Heart Association’s website at www.heart.org/handsonlycpr to watch their Hands-Only CPR instructional video.    

Fires in the U.S.

Cooking fires remain the #1 cause of residential fires. CPSC data show that there are about 360,300 home fires per year, leading to nearly 2,400 deaths and about 10,900 injuries each year.  Of these, an estimated 165,600 are cooking fires, leading to an estimated 200 deaths and 3,200 injuries annually. 

An average of 1,600 cooking fires occur on Thanksgiving Day each year, more than three times the average number of daily cooking fires throughout the year.

Turkey fryers create particular risks. Since 2000, CPSC is aware of 217 fire or scald/burn incidents involving turkey fryers, resulting in 83 injuries and $9.5 million in property loss.

Holiday Decorating:

Putting up holiday lights and decorations around the home and fireplace are common customs for many families. However, dry Christmas trees, burning candles, and busted holiday lights can lead to dangerous and even deadly fires.

  • Make sure your live Christmas tree has plenty of water, and look for the “Fire Resistant” label when buying an artificial tree.
  • Place burning candles in sight, away from flammable items, and blow them out before leaving the room.
  • Never string together more than three sets of incandescent lights, and never overload electrical outlets.

In Case of Emergency Call 911!
