Why CPR?

John Riley from Skuttle fired me a link to this one...

An air conditioning contractor stops by to check on an installation. He hadn't planned on stopping, but the homeowner is glad he did.

While checking the thermostat, the homeowner collapsed. He was having a massive heart attack. The contractor immediately started performing CPR, restarted the homeowner's heart, and kept him alive until the paramedics could arrive.

Is the contractor a hero? You bet. But what if he hadn't had the training? What then?

Fortunately, we'll never know. However, we can take a lesson from the story and arrange for CPR training for our staffs.
