CPR/AED & First Aid

CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation also known as CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

This class is designed to teach the proper techniques used in CPR to adults, teens, and youth. Participates will receive training in CPR, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and the relief of a chocking adult, child, and infant.
