CPR/AED Adult Class Offered

The American Red Cross of Central New York  will offer an Adult CPR/AED class on Tuesday, December 7th, from 5:30p.m. to 10:30p.m. at the Oswego County branch office located at 333 West First Street in Oswego. This class is designed for members of the public or anyone who would like to be prepared and able to respond to emergency situations.

Participants will learn a variety of ways to be prepared for and respond to an emergency situation.  The skills learned are both important and valuable, as one can never know when an emergency will occur.  Skills learned will include: providing aid in breathing emergencies using cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and an automated external defibrillator (AED) for victims of sudden cardiac arrest, how to care for a person who is choking, when and how to move a person from a dangerous scene, and identifying the signals of shock and how to minimize its effects.

Getting certified and being able to help in time of emergency can help save a life. If interested and would like more information, please contact the Oswego branch office at 343-0967 or visit our website at www.redcrosscny.org . Be prepared to save a life, become CPR/ AED certified.
