MONROE - Employees of Woodford State Bank took an hour Feb. 19 to learn the Cardio-Cerebral Resuscitation technique from Green County EMS.

CCR differs from the traditional CPR in that CPR delivers mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Stopping chest compressions to give mouth-to-mouth may waste precious time. Studies have shown that CCR keeps blood moving to the hearts and brains of cardiac arrest victims.

Green County EMS, a volunteer/paid-on-call service, is the primary 911 ambulance service for Monroe and a large part of Green County. They are always looking for new members and opportunities to educate the community.
