Offered by the American Heart Association with Ewing Township EMS
The Township of Ewing recognizes the importance of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillators (AED). Bringing this training to our community members increases both awareness and readiness in Ewing; both of which play a vital role in the chain of survival for heart attack victims.
The Family & Friends CPR/AED course will teach registered adults how to effectively deliver CPR and how to correctly use an AED in accordance with current American Heart Association guidelines using the American Heart Association’s Family & Friends instructional course at two training courses on June 22 and 26th. Unfortunately, the course cannot accommodate juveniles.
Each course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and mild and severe airway block for adults, children, and infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.
Each course will also teach how to assist people who are choking.
Both courses will be facilitated by the American Heart Association, assisted by Ewing Township Emergency Medical Services personnel, and will be held at the Hollowbrook Community Center, 320 Hollowbrook Drive, Ewing, NJ 08638.
Registration is limited to 24 adults per class.
