Good Samaritan Laws

There are several reasons people are hesitant to learn CPR. One that is often mentioned is the fear of getting sued. Fortunately this should not be an impediment — Good Samaritan laws in every state and the federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act help to minimize a lay rescuer’s liability, as long as you don’t try to do anything beyond your training and do not try to do harm. The alternative is standing by helplessly and watching someone die while you await the arrival of emergency medical personnel. In just a few hours, you can learn the CPR/AED skills to save the life of a friend, co-worker, loved one or even a stranger.
