Learn the Skills to Save a Life (CPR)

According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 people each year suffer from sudden cardiac arrest, a condition where the heart suddenly stops working. Beginning Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) while activating the emergency response system (911) helps to provide life-saving blood flow to the heart and brain until trained personnel arrive. CPR can double or even triple the chance of survival!

Upcoming Classes

This basic class utilizes American Heart Association curriculum and teaches life-saving skills of CPR, AED use and choking relief. The target audience for this course is people who do not need a course completion card for job or other requirements or for community groups, new parents/grandparents, caregivers, students and others interested in learning how to save a life.
