Westport EMS Offers Free, Hands-Only CPR Classes

Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Service (WVEMS) announces it will be offering free Hands-Only CPR training sessions for the general public.

Students will learn how to perform hands-only CPR (no mouth-to-mouth) for an adult who does not show signs of life, how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and how to assist an adult who is choking and cannot breathe. Hands-Only CPR takes only 30 minutes to learn; it is NOT a certification-level class.  

Classes will take place on Friday March 21, 2014; one at 9 a.m. and a second at 10 a.m., in the training classroom of the Westport Police/EMS Headquarters building, located at 50 Jesup Rd. Participants need to attend only one 30-minute session, at the time of their choosing. Participants should use the Training Division entrance on the west side of the building (facing the Library). Please do not park in spaces designated for the Police Department.

Pre-registration is required in order to ensure a proper ratio of instructors to students. Sign up by sending an e-mail to cpr@westportems.org, or call our CPR Hotline @ (203) 341-6030. Please indicate the date and time that you want to attend.

Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Service (WVEMS), a designated American Heart Association (AHA) training center, also conducts certified CPR and First Aid classes. For a full schedule of our classes, please go to our website, www.westportems.org, and click on the Training tab.

the times given for this particular and very important class excludes the workers who will be unable to attend. An evening class or even a Saturday class would be much appreciated for those of us with a job that we have to be at during the hours given.
