CPR / AED Classes
Because an Emergency Can Occur ANYTIME...
The American Heart Association's CPR and Automated External Defibillators AED learning programs help increase survival rates by training people just like you to respond quickly. The sad truth is most people don't survive a cardiac arrest. Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it's too late, but less than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.
The Avon Fire Department offers CPR & AED training to the community, businesses and Health Care professionals in the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.
Our classes are lead by trained AHA instructors and take between 3 and 4 hours to complete. Class sizes range from a minimum of 6 people to a maximum 12 with the cost being only $50 per person. To sign up, please call the fire department at 440-934-1222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All that is needed to sign up is your name and phone number. Payment of $50 is due the day of the class in the form of a check.
