Learn Hands-Only CPR - #CPRsaveslives

As part of CPR and AED Awareness Week, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue firefighters and paramedics would like to remind all residents that Hands-Only CPR can save lives. According to our friends at the American Heart Association, most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene.

As a bystander, don’t be afraid. Your actions can only help. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person’s chance of survival.

Watch the brief video below to learn how two easy steps can help to save a life in the event of an emergency.

How fast a car heats up

Leaving a child unattended in a car for even a minute is not acceptable. Each year, kids are left alone in a car that quickly heats up with the end result being injury or even death. Some involve kids getting into unlocked cars unbeknownst to parents and quickly succumb to the heat. Did you know that a car’s temperature can rise over 20 degrees in ten minutes?

Dr. Avstreih, Office of the Medical Director, recognized Firefighter Katie Auer, Station 13, Dunn Loring, A-Shift Tuesday for her calm, excellent care of an infant having an airway emergency. She quickly set up the pediatric airway equipment for Firefighter/Paramedic Bachmann. Firefighter Auer inspected the baby’s mouth and visualized “something shinny” and pulled out a thumbnail sized sticker. Baby then produced a very strong cry and his color improved. She also did an excellent job reassuring the parents. Great job! #FCFRD
