(H3) firmly believes that raising awareness within our community is a vital step in saving lives and alleviating the apprehension associated with providing aid during critical situations. By addressing these concerns, we aim to bridge the gap identified by organizations like the American Heart Association, which highlights the issue of delayed assistance.

By working together, we can empower individuals to overcome their fears and hesitations when it comes to rendering aid, ultimately making a significant impact on the timely delivery of life-saving assistance.

Our Community CPR classes will cover techniques for Adults, Children, and Infants (Hands-only CPR), the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), and abdominal thrusts (the Heimlich Maneuver) for choking victims. These classes will be non-certification courses. The classes run under the American Heart Association Family & Friends model, which is a non-certification course. *Certification is not required to save a life.
