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.

Echo Show 5 Plays Default Chime Before Music for Alarm Set To Play From Spotify

I have a new Show 5. When I set an alarm to wake on music, and test it with say a couple minutes from the current time, it works fine. However, when I set the same alarm for 7:30 am, the alarm always plays a bit of the default chime before playing the music selection. This, of course, is after the Show 5 has been idle all night so I'm suspecting some sort network startup delay. Surely there must be a way to prevent this from happening. I can use a routine instead of an alarm, and that works fine, but its not an alarm with snooze.
