The Henry and Stark County Health Departments and First Choice Healthcare remind residents they are once again offering monthly CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) Certification Classes.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. That’s why we encourage people to take a CPR Certification Class. As the American Heart Association says, “Learn to save a life, learn CPR. The Life you SAVE could be that of a loved one.”
CPR training will teach participants to recognize and care for breathing and cardiac emergencies in infants, children, and adults. Instruction will also be given on how to recognize emergencies and actions to take, and understanding the role of AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) in the Cardiac Chain of Survival.
CPR Classes are held the fourth Tuesday monthly. The class will be held at the Health Department offices, 110 N. Burr Blvd., Kewanee, IL. The classes will run from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. The cost of the Class is $45. Payment and registration is due prior to the class date. These rates are per participant.
There is a set participant "minimum" and "maximum" for classes; so anyone interested should contact the Department at 852-0197 Extension 266.
