Community CPR Program

In an era where every second counts, the importance of effective CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) cannot be overstated. At Valle Ambulance District, we take pride in our commitment to empowering individuals with life-saving skills through our CPR program. As we reflect on its success, we celebrate the countless lives that have been preserved and the communities that have been strengthened by our initiative.
