CPR Demonstrations to be Held at Men’s Ice Hockey Game Feb. 21
The University of Maine Training and Safety (UMTS) organization will demonstrate hands-only CPR during the UMaine men’s ice hockey game against Northeastern on Feb. 21.
The goal of the student-run group, which operates as part of University Volunteer Ambulance Corps, is to train 1,000 people in hands-only CPR this year. The group is halfway to meeting its goal.
Hockey fans can help by visiting the UMTS table in the Alfond Arena’s main lobby during the game, where instructors will offer free 30-second sessions. Trainers also will offer instruction in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) on a manikin.
Those who perform hands-only CPR Saturday night will be entered into a drawing for a Friends of Maine Hockey gift basket filled with UMaine hockey items and will receive $5 off a Heartsaver certification course.
