When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I was also trying to figure this out and these answers have been super helpful. I've collected all of the information I can find online and created a guide to setting up the Echo in Canada. While it's Canada focused it's all equally applicable for those of you in other countries. Hope this is helpful to someone! http://paleblueliving.com/blogs/saving-energy-in-style/114605123-making-the-amazon-echo-work-in-canada-the-complete-guide

Hi everyone, i've had my echo for a couple of hours and i used the following links to set the time to uk/London.
 the first link will show you your time zone

This link shows you how to change the time.

Well I received my Echo today and it works great.  Used the app to put a  TuneIn station in and it started playing.  Asked it for the weather and it gave me the weather for where my VPN terminates in the states.  I then asked it for the weather for my location (Grodno) and she replied she did not know that location. I then asked for weather in Minsk and she gave me the full run down for today and tomorrow.  Minsk is just far enough away (3-4 hour drive)for the weather to be different, so will have to figure out some way to let her know where Grodno is located I guess.  As someone suggested it would be great if they would allow you to put in your location by latitude and longitude, as I know that information ffom a couple of other apps I use.
My wife loves it as she can control it as well.

unless there is a weather reporting station for the service amazon echo uses, then you may not get one.  You may want to try other towns closer to you if your town does not have a reporting station.
