3:30 p.m. at Edmonds Community College (20000 68th Ave. W. in Lynnwood). Premera Blue Cross and American Red Cross have partnered to offer four opportunities for free hands-only CPR training. Sessions will be held at 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. A session in Spanish will be held at 6:30 p.m. Premera will provide free first aid kits to all attendees at each event. More than 80 percent of all sudden cardiac arrests occur at home. According to the Resuscitation Research Group, the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest outside a hospital is twice as high when bystanders perform continuous chest compressions without mouth-to-mouth breathing, as opposed to standard CPR.
