First Aid/CPR Classes
Heart disease and stroke are the number one and number three causes of death, and a leading cause of disability, among Californians. Compared to the rest of the country, California has an above average rate for coronary heart disease mortality! You can make a difference. The first step is to learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
You will be trained by a CPR instructor who is an experienced staff member of the Belmont Fire Department. You will learn to administer CPR in a safe, timely and effective manner to an adult (defined as being 12 years or older). You will also be trained on how to use an AED. This class is for people who:
May perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the workplace or similar setting.
May need to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
May need to help someone who is choking.
