KIRKLAND, Wash. – Imagine you’re out with your family or friends and suddenly someone stops breathing normally or their heart has stopped. Would you know what to do?
Come and learn at a free, in-person CPR class for community members beginning in February. The Kirkland Fire Department is partnering with the Medic One Foundation (MOF) to provide free CPR classes to community members every few months.
“Every person with the knowledge and confidence to provide CPR in an emergency helps make our community safer,” said Kirkland Mayor Kelli Curtis. “We’re excited to offer this free opportunity to our community members to equip them with the skills and training they need to help save lives.”
The first CPR class in Kirkland will be:
- Wednesday, February 21, from 4 to 7 p.m.
- At Kirkland Fire Station 22, multi-purpose room
- Taught by Medic One Foundation certified instructors
- FREE, unless community members are seeking certification, which includes a fee
Medic One Foundation offers American Heart Association (AHA) Heartsaver® CPR/AED and First Aid training classes, which satisfy WISHA and OSHA requirements. MOF instructors are AHA certified and provide class participants with quality hands-on experience and instruction in emergency medical care.
CPR class is free for participants who do not require a certification card. For those seeking certification, one of the following fees would apply:
- CPR/AED training: $30
- First Aid training: $30
- CPR/AED & First Aid: $60
All class participants must be 12 years old or older. Participants under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register for CPR Class see the City’s website.
