Learn how to save a life in Farmington Hills

Local residents can learn several life-saving techniques during a class offered on Tuesday, May 22, in Farmington Hills.

The American Heart Association Heartsaver class features instruction in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and use of the Automated External Defibrillator and First Aid. “Stop the Bleed” includes hands-on training in applying wound pressure and using tourniquets.

The class is open to the public and will be held from 5:30 to 10 p.m. in the upstairs training room at Fire Station #4, 28711 Drake Road.

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.

Please note – all class participants who are seeking to achieve the Certificate of Training must be physically able to perform CPR/AED, which requires kneeling on the floor and using your arms and hands to perform continuous chest compressions.

Participants must register and pay fees one week in advance to ensure the proper student to instructor ratio. Registration will be confirmed via email after the fee is received. Individuals who show up without paying the fee seven days in advance will be asked to wait and register for a future class. Participants must be at least 12 years old.

To register, contact Sara West at swest@fhgov.com or 248-871-2802.
