How: Teaching Hands-Only CPR and AED use to 10% of our population annually, building strong relationships with our local partners in emergency medicine, and promoting Public Access Defibrillation with strategic placement of AED’s throughout Richland.
Time is valuable. In as little as 30-minutes, we will provide you with the most recent data and hands-on skills required to save a life.
When: Beginning this June, we will offer open enrollment classes once per quarter, as well as recruiting local Home Owner Associations, (HOA) businesses, churches, etc. to host classes and become part of our Heart Safe Community.
