In the interest of promoting a healthier community, there's going to be a free Bystander CPR training event Thursday night at the Wenatchee Convention Center.

The event is being put on by the North Central Emergency Care Council with sponsorships from Wenatchee Valley Medical Center, Central Washington Hospital, the Commmunity Foundation of North Central Washington, Wenatchee Valley College and other organizations.

More than 500 free Bystander CPR kits will be handed out. If those who receive kits pass those to friends and family, the number of people trained in the life-saving technique will expand dramatically, said Linette Gahringer, executive director of the Emergency Care Council.

When someone has a heart attack, they'll lose 10 percent of heart muscle every minute so every second counts, she said.

Those who attend won't get a CPR certificate but will be able to provide meaningful assistance in an emergency. Registration for the event begins at 5:45 and the training will be held from 6:30 to 7:30.

This is an opportunity not to be missed. It's just one more way we can make our communities stronger.
