San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013

In 2007, Congress designated the first week of June as National CPR/AED Week in order to bring attention to the importance of CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) training to save a friend, family member, or coworker in case of a life threatening emergency.
