SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Falls Fire Rescue is teaching lifesaving skills this week as part of National EMS Week.

Crews will be at Empire Mall from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day to teach CPR and show residents how to use an Automated External Defibrillator. They'll also show people how to understand and download the free PulsePoint smart phone app, which notifies users when an emergency happens in a public place.

National EMS Week runs through May 25.
