Fire Department Holding Quarterly CPR Training This Saturday


The Susanville Fire Department in cooperation with the American Heart Association, will be hosting free quarterly community CPR training classes, with the first one coming up this Saturday, April 20th.

The CPR training will be conducted by AHA CPR instructors at the fire department and is designed for anyone with limited or no medical training.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances for survival after cardiac arrest.

The First Aid course will train participants in first aid basics for the most common type of emergencies, including how to recognize them, how to call for help and how to perform lifesaving skills.

Students will receive an AHA Heartsaver CPR First Aid card upon successful completion of the class which begins at 8:30a.m. The class, which includes hands-on skills, can take up to four hours depending on class size.

It is intended for the general public and will not meet professional rescuer requirements.

If you or anyone you know would like to learn this lifesaving skill or have any questions, please call the fire department. The class size is limited.

More CPR classes will be held on July 20th and October 19th.

To RSVP please call 1.530.257.5152.
