Dr. John Reagan demonstrates a typical CPR routine on a mannequin to show students how to properly perform CPR for his level two law class. “The most important thing is to recognize the emergency, and you want to make sure the scene is safe. Next, you want to check the victim to see if they are okay. Make sure you assist them [the victim] as quickly as you can to see what is going on, have one person call 911 while another person finds an AED. Then, look at the victim to make sure they are breathing.  If they are not breathing, you have to start CPR,” Reagan said.
