TTUHSC El Paso Students Offer Free CPR Training

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso students will offer free CPR training Saturday and Monday as part of the nationwide Texas Two Step CPR: Save a Life Campaign.

This is the fourth year TTUHSC El Paso students have participated in the campaign, co-sponsored by the nonprofits HealthCorps and First Impact.

The event was created by a group of medical students and the Texas College of Emergency Physicians in 2016 after recognizing the need to train more Texans in lifesaving, hands-only CPR.

Last year, the event trained more than 7,892 individuals at 60 sites across the country.

During five-minute training sessions, El Pasoans will learn how to quickly react to cardiac emergencies in two steps:

  1. Call 911.
  2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest until help arrives.

The free training will be offered from:

Noon – 4 p.m. Saturday at the El Paso Baptist Clinic, 2700 N. Piedras St.

2 – 6 p.m. Saturday at The Fountains at Farah, 8889 Gateway Blvd. West.

4 – 8 p.m. Monday at Kilo Lift Barbell and Sports Club, 4316 Rosa Ave.
