Register by May 9 for Farmington Hills CPR/First Aid/Stop the Bleed class

Local residents can learn about CPR, using an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), First Aid, and “Stop the Bleed” tourniquet use during a May 16 class held at Farmington Hills Fire Station #4.

Training sponsored by the Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC), in cooperation with the Farmington Hills Fire Department, will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., in the station’s upstairs training room.

“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. An additional $20 fee is required for an American Heart Association Certificate of Training. Participants must be at least 12 years old.

Attendees must register and pay fees one week in advance. To register, write to Sara West at swest@fhgov.com.
