Firefighters Offer Free CPR Classes
February Marks American Heart Month
During the month of February, the Brentwood Fire & Rescue Department will be offering free cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes at the Brentwood Library. CPR is a lifesaving technique that is useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
Class Dates and Times
The classes will be offered on February 2, 9, 16, and 23 from each night beginning at 6:30 pm. Each class will last approximately two hours and are geared toward those ages 16 and up. Classes will offer training on infant, child, and adult CPR. For adult CPR, participants will be taught both traditional and “hands only” CPR (no mouth-to-mouth breathing). This class will utilize the American Heart Association’s Friends & Family curriculum; therefore no CPR card will be issued. More information can be found on the American Heart Association’s website.
Classes are limited to 30 people per class.
