The City of Danville

The city of Danville is often referred to as “the Heart of the San Ramon Valley.”  Danville was a farming community until the 1950’s. The farmers raised cattle and sheep, and harvested wheat, fruit, nuts barley, wheat, and onions. Later, after the Southern Pacific Railroad was built, it became a residential suburb in 1947, with the population thriving highest in the 1970’s- 80’s. The Iron Horse Trail runs through the town of Danville; from Pleasanton to Concord, which once was an old railroad before pouring cement and converting it into an 80 foot wide bike and walking trail.  Danville is hosts the Village Theatre and Art Gallery, which features a variety of children’s theatrical performances, Broadway shows, and discussions.

Danville Medical and Emergency Services

The unfortunate part of an emergency is that it is usually something that is unprepared for, and life-saving skills may be crucial in the survival of oneself or a loved one.  First responders suggest that every family have an action plan in the case of an emergency. Part of this action plan is to plan for a medical emergency situation. One of the best ways to do this is to become CPR and First-Aid certified and encourage friends and family to do the same.  It is crucial for the brain to receive oxygen, and in the case of a sudden interruption of that process, that someone near knows how to perform CPR. A person who has is lacking oxygen to the brain can experience irreversible brain damage within just a few minutes, and can cause complete death within eight to ten minutes.  This skill can be the difference whether someone in an emergency lives or dies.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique, that can be beneficial in situations such as a heart attack of a near-drowning; a situation in which someone’s breathing or heart rate stops.  CPR can keep oxygen flowing to the brain and other vital organs, until further medical treatment can be provided. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that everyone to begin with chest compressions first.  It is always better to do something than to do nothing, in the case you are feeling like your skills are a bit rusty or that your knowledge and abilities aren’t 100%, remember, the difference between doing nothing and doing something could be someones life. 

Here’s advice from the American Heart Association:

  • Untrained. If you’re not trained in CPR, then provide hands-only CPR. That means uninterrupted chest compressions of 100 to 120 a minute until paramedics arrive (described in more detail below). You don’t need to try rescue breathing.
  • Trained and ready to go. If you’re well-trained and confident in your ability, check to see if there is a pulse and breathing. If there is no breathing or a pulse within 10 seconds, begin chest compressions. Start CPR with 30 chest compressions before giving two rescue breaths.
  • Trained but rusty. If you’ve previously received CPR training but you’re not confident in your abilities, then just do chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 a minute.
  • **Please note: This advice is only relevant for adults, children, and infants over 4 weeks of age.  Newborns follow a separate protocol.
  • To learn CPR effectively, take an accredited CPR training class, including how to use an automatic defibrillator (AED). If you are untrained but need immediate help, dial 911 and they will help guide you with directions on performing CPR.
