This class is designed for laypersons and not for healthcare professionals or others who require Basic Life Support training and certification at the Heartsaver or Healthcare Provider level. The Friends & Family class focuses on CPR and response to choking, gives information on AHA's adult and pediatric chain of survival, and helps participants:
- recognize signs of heart attack, cardiac arrest, stroke, and choking in adults
- recognize signs of choking in infants and children
- Perform the live-saving skills of CPR for adults, children, and infants.
Although the classes are free, preregistration is required as each class size is limited to 16 students.
