Lifesaving classes offered in Farmington Hills

Local residents have another opportunity on January 22 to learn lifesaving skills, during a class offered by the Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC), in cooperation with the Farmington Hills Fire Department.

The American Heart Association Heartsaver® Class, First Aid, and “Stop the Bleed” Tourniquet Training will be held from 5:30 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs training room at Fire Station #4, 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 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. If you require an American Heart Association Certificate of Training, there will be an additional $20 fee for both residents and non-residents.

Participants must be at least 12 years old, and must register and pay fees at least one week in advance. To register, write to Sara West, swest@fhgov.com.
