Fifty people learned CPR from Fire District 1 firefighters this past weekend at Lynnwood High School.
Students also learned how to use automated external defibrillators — devices that can administer a shock to restore a normal heartbeat for a heart attack patient.
“CPR provided immediately after cardiac arrest can double a victim’s chance of survival,” said Kim Schroeder, Fire District 1 public educator.
Fire District 1 plans to make CPR Saturday an annual event. It also offers monthly first-aid and CPR classes year-round. The cost is $35 to reserve a seat in a daylong class taught by firefighters using the American Heart Association’s curriculum. Visit the Fire District 1 website for more information, class schedule and registration form.
