The Sevierville Fire Department is offering citizens an opportunity to become certified in CPR/AED and also learn some fire safety tips from the pros.
A CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external defibrillator) training and certification course will be offered by the Sevierville Fire Department on Saturday, March 14, 2015 from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. at Fire Station 1, 122 Prince Street in downtown Sevierville. The course is open to the public. The class fee is $20 per person (checks payable to the City of Sevierville), which includes all class materials and a certification card.
In this classroom-based course, participants will learn to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR to victims of all ages, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
Increasing public awareness of the importance of early intervention and ensuring greater public access to defibrillation will save many lives. Educating providers, caregivers, and the general public on how to respond to these emergencies.
