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), First Aid, and “Stop the Bleed” Tourniquet Training from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10.
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.
“Stop the Bleed,” a national awareness campaign, encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Participants will receive hands-on training in applying wound pressure and using tourniquets.
The fee for the class and materials is $10 for residents of Farmington Hills/Farmington and $20 for non-residents, and an additional $20 fee for an American Heart Association Certificate of Training.
Participants must register and pay fees one week in advance and must be at least 12 years old.
To register, contact Sara West at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248-871-2802.
