Farmington Hills class teaches life-saving skills

Press release

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC), in cooperation with the Farmington Hills Fire Department, will offer an American Heart Association Heartsaver® Class, featuring instruction in CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and First Aid, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14.

The class is open to the public and will be held in the upstairs training room at Fire Station #4 located at 28711 Drake Rd.

A $10 fee will cover the cost of the class and materials for residents of Farmington Hills and Farmington. The class and materials fee is $20 for nonresidents. If you require an American Heart Association Certificate of Training, there will be an additional $10 fee for all participants. Please note – all class participants who are seeking to achieve the Certificate of Training must be physically able to perform CPR/AED, which requires kneeling on the floor and using your arms and hands to perform continuous chest compressions.

Participants must register and pay fees one week in advance to ensure the proper student to instructor ratio. Registration will be confirmed via email after the fee is received. Individuals who show up without paying the fee seven days in advance will be asked to wait and register for a future class.

Participants must be at least 12 years old.

To register, email Erin Karlson at ekarlson@fhgov.com or call 248-871- 2802.
