CPR / AED Classes

*CPR classes will resume starting with a Heartsaver class being offered on September 23, 2020. Class size will be limited due to social distancing guidelines and we will ask participants to wear masks. Participants will be provided a mask if they do not have their own.

We will be following the recommendations from the CDC and the American Heart Association regarding sanitizing the manikins and classroom surfaces before and after the class. Each participant will practice the skills on their own manikin and a disposable one-way valve will be provided for each participant during the breathing practice.

If the county goes to a LEVEL 3 per the Ohio Public Health Advisory Alert system, all classes will be immediately cancelled.


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 fdavon@fdavon.com.

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.

Classes for 2020 are listed below.  Please note, the BLS classes are for healthcare providers and the Heartsaver classes are for anyone with limited or no medical training.
