Heartsaver First Aid
Monday March 1
Cost: $0 ($ + $ materials fee)
Want to learn how to respond appropriately if an adult, child, or infant has a first aid emergency? The American Heart Association’s First Aid and CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator) workshops help increase survival rates by teaching participants lifesaving skills for emergency situations.
Both workshops include video and trainer-led instruction, hands-on practice, and a test. Students who complete the course and pass the test receive a Heartsaver® First Aid or CPR/AED course completion card. The workshops are geared to those with little or no medical training.
The First Aid Workshop teaches the critical skills for responding to and managing a first aid or choking emergency in the first minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrive. Participants will learn how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock, and other first aid emergencies. There will be a maximum of 30 participants.
The CPR/AED Workshop teaches how to administer adult, youth, and infant CPR/AED until EMS services arrive. The maximum number of participants will be 24.
All materials and a manual are provided. Participants will perform practice procedures on the floor, be sure to dress comfortably.
