Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A generous donation to the Southern Nevada Burn Foundation will help many people learn life-saving skills.
More than 65 dummies were presented to the foundation on Wednesday to help with their Save a Life CPR program.
Bosh Construction purchased the dummies which will be distributed to every fire station in Southern Nevada.
Fire officials say this will enable trained officers to teach those who are interested in learning CPR. They say it only takes five minutes to learn properly.
Every minute that a person in cardiac arrest does not receive chest compressions, their survival rate decreases by 10 percent.
