PORTALES – KOAT-TV, the New Mexico Heart Institute and Eastern New Mexico University will host non-certification CPR training sessions in Room 2 of Greyhound Arena at ENMU in Portales on Saturday, June 23.
The training is free and open to the public. Food and drinks will be provided to volunteers.
After viewing a short training video, participants will have the opportunity to perform hands-only compressions on mannequins and learn how to operate an AED.
Participants will need to attend one of the one-hour sessions at 8, 9 and 10 a.m.
The Bank of Clovis has provided 50 mannequins to the nursing department at ENMU for use during the training – and they can also be checked out later.
For more information or to volunteer, contact project director Linda Thrower at 575.799.4114.
