A Heartsaver CPR/AED and first aid course will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The course will be conducted by Atlantic Training Center at Holy Faith Lutheran Church (104 Paradise Road, Oak Ridge, across from Paradise Knolls School).
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique that is useful in emergencies in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped, such as heart attacks or near drownings. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that diagnoses life-threatening heart problems and treats them through defibrillation, which allows the heart to reestablish its proper rhythm. Having these skills could save someone’s life.
Participants are asked to bring a sack lunch and note-taking material. Certification will be given upon completion of the course. The cost is $40 (check payable to Holy Faith Lutheran Church). Registration and payment must be completed by January 11. For questions and to register, contact Dorothy Flar at 973-208-6960 or email@example.com.
