Title: CPR/AED Certification
Instructor: Office of Emergency Preparedness Staff    
Location: Class is full
Description
Get CPR/AED certified  and learn how to help when it's needed most. As part of our mission to train people how to respond to and prepare for emergencies, we offer CPR/AED certification classes that can help you save a life when every moment counts. You may not realize it, but the response time for first responders after 911 is called averages 8-12 minutes, and during sudden cardiac arrest  each minute that defibrillation is delayed reduces someone's chances of survival by approximately 10%. This is why, at the American Red Cross, we support the position that improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year. In fact, we believe that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.
