In the summer of 2006, a man was shot twice in the head in Birmingham, Alabama. He was kept alive in critical condition on life support after the police had already declared him dead at the scene.
A new campaign by the American Heart Association is seeking to teach people hands-only CPR. They are using the Bee Gees hit “Staying Alive” as the guide for the proper rate of chest compressions. It is a fun and interesting way to help people improve their Alabama BLS skills and respond to cardiac arrest.
In December of 2011, a Birmingham firefighter suffered severe burns while trying to fight a fire. His protective gear seemed to fail, and he was burned to the bone in some places. He was admitted to the hospital to for a ten-day stay, and he underwent multiple skin grafts. The firefighter community has given him tremendous support as he heals.
