Event description

Description

Instead of holding our typical quarterly emergency preparedness volunteers' Inspiration Session, we're offering you 2 opportunities to take the hands-only CPR/AED training class. Taught by Santa Clara County Fire Department, this free class will teach Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and use of an automatic external defribullator.

American Heart Association (AHA) data show that starting CPR immediately can double or triple the chances of a cardiac victim's survival. The AHA's goal it to have every citizen in the United States to have taken a Hands-Only CPR by 2020.

Participants will learn how to perform high quality chest compressions on an adult and child, utilize an AED, and aid an adult or child who is choking. Most often, you will need to perform CPR on a family member, friend or co-worker. Learn how to perform high quality compressions and use an AED in the precious moments before first responders arrive.

Participants will NOT receive a two-year CPR/AED certification card for this class. However, the AHA wants the community to understand that CPR classes which provide certification cards are mainly for residents who need to take a class to prove to their employer they took the class (nurses, doctors, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters, dental assistants, etc.) It does not deem the class better than a non-certification class, and you gain the skills to improve a cardiac victim's chances of survival.
