Monroe Volunteer EMS will offer a CPR/AED class for the public on Monday, Feb. 25 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the former Chalk Hill School.
The American Heart Association program covers the updated material and guidelines for CPR and relief of a choking adult, child and infant, as well as training in the use of the AED (automated external defibrillator.)
All participants will receive a two-year certification card and student manual, and skill reminder cards. The course is designed for lay people who require a credential for completion, and is not for healthcare providers.
The cost is $25 per person, which includes book, card and other supplies. The fee is payable on the night of the course.
Participants must be age 12 or older. Pre-registration is required. A minimum of six people is required to hold the class, which can accommodate up to 18 people.
All instructors are Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service members who donate their time. The Monroe EMS provides the space and supplies.
To enroll call Marge Brenna at 203-261-9069, evenings or weekends.
