If you had the chance to save someone’s life using CPR, would you know how? If not, now’s your chance to learn. The Kirkland Fire Department is again partnering with the Medic One Foundation to provide the next free CPR class for the community.

“You never know when you’ll find yourself in an emergency and someone you love might need CPR,” said Kirkland City Councilmember Penny Sweet.  “We had more interest than seats for last month’s CPR class, so we accelerated the timeline in offering this next class to meet our community’s interest in learning how to help save lives if they’re ever called upon.”

The CPR class will be on Monday, March 18, from 4 to 7 p.m.  The class will be at Kirkland Fire Station 22 in the Central Houghton Neighborhood, in the multi-purpose room. 

Medic One Foundation offers American Heart Association (AHA) Heartsaver® CPR/AED and First Aid training classes, which satisfy WISHA and OSHA requirements.  Their instructors are AHA certified.

The 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.

There is limited parking at Fire Station 22. Free parking is available at the nearby Kirkland Seventh-Day Adventist Church, just south of Fire Station 22, at 6400 108th Ave NE.

Pre-registration is required. For more information or to register for CPR Class see the City’s website.
