Take Heart Woodbury Reaches Goal

The city on Monday announced that 7,000 people have been trained in hands-only CPR.

Woodbury Public Safety has reached its goal of training 7,000 people in hands-only CPR.

The initiative, called Take Heart Woodbury, launched last February. The public safety department will continue to train people in the technique. Find more information on the city’s website.

Here’s a timeline of Patch stories on the program.

Take Heart—You Can Do It!

From Woodbury Patch blogger Vicki Strong: I joined 29 other people who were on their knees at Woodbury Lutheran Church last Saturday evening. Not necessarily a strange occurence in a church, except we weren’t praying — we were groovin’ to the beat of the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive. Or at least a (fairly) reasonable rendition of it as sung by Firefighter Bill.
