“Learn How to Save Lives…for Free” – 60 Sec. PSA-As-Recorded


CHILD: Someone help; my mom is going into cardiac arrest!


(sfx: sounds of heartbeating, someone yelling call 911, and a life line)


ANNCR(woman): Did you know that each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States? And, of this number, about 90% of these people will die. This is because less than half of these people will not get the proper help they need before professional help arrives. And in the end, most people who survive cardiac arrest are helped by a first responder.


ANNCR(woman): An emergency could happen to anyone – a mother, a father, a child, a spouse, a friend, or a stranger. And there is no planning for something like this to happen, except for being prepared.


(sfx: sound of heart beating, sirens)


ANNCR(man): As part of the American Red Cross’s nationwide campaign, the Eugene City Hospital will host a one-day FREE event open to all the Lane County public. Normally a $75 value, Eugene City Hospital will provide this opportunity for participants to receive their first aid and CPR certification for free as part of a national campaign.


ANNCR(man): This event will take place on Saturday, May 19 in the Alton Baker Park from the 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Lane County residents above the age of 14 are urged to attend. Lunch, refreshments, childcare, and other amenities will be provided.


ANNCR(man): People die every day from cardiac arrest and it is up to you to learn how you can help. Pre-register online, in person, or on the phone to Eugene City Hospital Public Relations Department at (541) 485-1234 or online at
