CHICO, Calif. - A company that aims to teach Chico residents CPR in times of emergency, held a cook-off Saturday, in hopes of motivating families to learn the important procedure.


Dozens of people gathered at Lifeline Training Center, East Avenue in Chico, to enjoy free food, play games, touch farm animals and learn hands-on how to perform CPR.


The training center held the yearly event for the third time and had sustenance to bring in people to learn a new skill.


One volunteer, James Ledonne, says his wife makes an effort to pull this together to expose their educational company and to inform citizens.


“Some cardiac arrests can be reversed if you start CPR quickly call 911. And we're just trying to get the word out that just by compressional CPR you enhance that person's chance of life incredibly than just waiting for the medics to show up,” Ledonne said.


The event also featured a bounce house, a simulation of how to milk a cow and music from a local radio station.
