CPR class has openings
From: Sapulpa Daily Herald - Sepulpa, OK
The Sapulpa Fire Department and Creek County Ambulance announced they will begin a community outreach program next month with Family & Friends CPR classes.
“You have the power to save lives,” said Creek County Ambulance Education Coordinator Taylor Hargrove.
Classes in Sapulpa will be in the evening on the second Tuesday of the month. The next class is scheduled for Sept. 10. Class size is limited.
Sapulpa Fire Department Training Officer Brady Redus said the course is not for certification purposes. It will help residents understand what to do in case of an emergency and how CPR can save lives.
The classes are designed to fill the gap in the area because of the limited availability of similar classes.
Topics covered included cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the use of automated external defibrillators (AED’s) and choking. The class includes hands-on demonstrations, practice, videos and trained professionals who want to help empower the public to save lives.
First responders from the Sapulpa Fire Department and Creek County Ambulance donate their time to teach the classes. Their agencies provide literature and class materials through their budgets.
Redus said children are welcome to attend classes, but must be accompanied by an adult.
For more information on the class or to enroll call 918-224-3359 during business hours.
