Heartsaver CPR / AED / Basic First Aid class goes over general information including: Good Samaritan law, signs & symptoms of a heart attack and stroke, barrier devices and how to live a healthier life. We demonstrate adult, child & infant skills on a manikin then have the students perform the skills. The Instructor will go over the AED (automated external defibrillator), such as where to find the AED in a public place, and how to properly use it on a adult or child. This is also “hands on” training for the student and he / she will receive their AHA CPR / AED / Basic First Aid Certification after class. This first aid class touches on bleeding, bites, stings, poisoning, burns, and frost bite. We also demonstrate the epinephrine pen (EPI pen) so students have a visual of what it will look like in a real-life situation. We cover heat/cold emergencies, broken bones, and medical emergencies. All course topics will be completed within 4 - 5 hours.
This course is for foster parents, caregivers, contractors, security guards, new parents, and other members of the community.
