The City of Richmond's Richmond Emergency Action Community Teams (REACT)

Between Thanksgiving and New Years, there is a nation-wide increase in cardiac-related deaths. when many people suffer heart attacks, due to the stress of the season, weather and overindulgence. Everyone should know how to do compression-only CPR, which does not require any mouth to mouth contact and can save a life.

The American Red Cross has developed a two minute video "How to perform compression-only CPR".
To view the video, just click on the PLAY button in the center of the screen below.

Recently a teenager who had learned CPR thru the American Red Cross just two short weeks earlier saved the life of a BART passenger who had collapsed, using her newly learned skills. Together we can save a life. Jim Mallory ARCBA Public Affairs co-chair 510-812-3647 24 Hour Media Hotline 415-427-8800

REACTREACT trains citizens to respond to and recover from a major disaster, saving lives and property when professional public safety resources like police, fire and paramedics are overwhelmed or can't reach some neighborhoods.

REACT training provides our community with the life saving tools and knowledge needed to become self sufficient for the first 72 hours plus after a major disaster, when our limited number of professional emergency responders will be quickly overwhelmed. Residents must be prepared to take care of themselves and their neighborhoods. This FREE training will empower you with the life saving skills necessary in fire suppression, utility control, disaster medical, hazardous materials awareness, light search and rescue, team development, terrorism and disaster psychology.
