SYRACUSE — Bailee Wilcox learned quickly that chest compressions are not as easy as the Syracuse firefighters made them look.
“Oh, my gosh, that’s hard,” said the 16-year-old girl as she tried to do the compressions on the dummy.
Bailee was among two dozen Syracuse Parks and Recreation employees who were at a training seminar Monday for the use of automatic external defibrillators.
The city recently bought six of them at a cost of $1,700 apiece. The city received a seventh defibrillator, plus a rolling cart, from the company it purchased them from for free.
