The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC), in cooperation with the Farmington Hills Fire Department, will on November 14 offer an American Heart Association Heartsaver® Class, featuring instruction in CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator), First Aid, and “Stop the Bleed” Tourniquet Training.
Held from 5:30 to 10 p.m., the class is open to the public and will be held in the upstairs training room at Fire Station #4 located at 28711 Drake Road.
“Stop the Bleed” is a national awareness campaign that encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Participants will receive 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. Participants must register and pay fees one week before the date of the class to ensure the proper student to instructor ratio. Participants must be at least 12 years old.
Registration for the class is taken via email only. To register or for more information, contact Sara West at firstname.lastname@example.org.
