The Snoqualmie Fire Department is hosting a First Aid, CPR & AED* Class on Saturday, May 14, 2022, from 9am to 3pm ( with 1/2 hour lunch).

Students will learn how to initially address shock, bleeding, sprains, broken bones, and other incidents requiring first-aid. Upon finishing the class, students will receive a completion card valid for two years. Cost: $35 (check or cash), includes a workbook and key chain/face mask. (Ages 16+)

[*An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses life-threatening heart-related problems of many types including sudden cardiac arrest. The equipment is able to treat a victim through defibrillation, the application of electricity which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layperson.]
