Learn lifesaving skills in Farmington Hills Heartsaver class

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC), in cooperation with the Farmington Hills Fire Department, will offer an American Heart Association Heartsaver® Class on Thursday, September 19.

The class is open to the public and will be held in the upstairs training room at Fire Station #4, 28711 Drake Road. Instruction from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. will include CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator), First Aid, and “Stop the Bleed” Tourniquet Training.

“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 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. There is also an additional $20 fee for those who require an American Heart Association Certificate of Training.

Participants must register and pay fees one week before the date of the class to ensure the proper student to instructor ratio. Since your spot will be reserved in advance, pre-payment for classes will not be refunded if the participant is unable to attend. Participants must be at least 12 years old.
