The free training is designed for the public to be prepared and confident to handle a medical emergency. The training is offered in two segments of about 90 minutes each. Family and Friends CPR will be the first session covering hands-only CPR, how to occlude severed arteries, using AEDs and basic first aid. The second session is Stop the Bleed, training for the public to save lives in emergencies involving un-controlled bleeding before first responders arrive. The Friends and Family CPR session does not result in certification.
Registration for the training sessions is required whether attending one or both segments.
