Genesee Fire Rescue is offering a Family & Friends CPR class, scheduled on Saturday, June 22, from 9:00 am to 11:30 am at the Genesee Fire Station. This invaluable class aims to equip participants with the essential skills needed to save lives in critical situations.


The Family & Friends CPR class covers a range of life-saving techniques, ensuring that participants are prepared to respond confidently to various emergency scenarios. Led by experienced instructors from Genesee Fire Rescue, the class provides hands-on training in the following skills:


· Adult Hands-Only™ CPR: Learn the proper technique for performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on adults without the need for mouth-to-mouth breaths, focusing on chest compressions to maintain blood circulation.


· Child CPR with Breaths: Understand how to administer CPR to children, including the integration of rescue breaths along with chest compressions to support breathing and circulation.


· Adult and Child AED Use: Gain proficiency in operating automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for both adults and children, vital devices that can restore normal heart rhythms during sudden cardiac arrest.


· Infant CPR: Master the specialized CPR techniques tailored for infants, ensuring gentle yet effective intervention in the event of a cardiac or respiratory emergency.


· Relief of Choking: Learn how to recognize and respond to choking emergencies in adults, children, and infants, with techniques tailored to each age group to clear obstructed airways and restore normal breathing.


With a limited class size of 8 individuals or couples, participants can expect personalized attention and guidance, allowing for a highly interactive and engaging learning experience. This class is open to anyone eager to learn how to make a difference in emergency situations. Note: the class has no written exam and does not provide a certificate of completion.


All funds collected for this class go towards the Genesee Fire And Rescue Volunteer Fund. Please know that your donation to Genesee Fire Rescue, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization, may qualify for a tax deduction.
