Community CPR classes will be held this Saturday at the Spring Hill Fire Station where attendees will learn the basics of performing CPR in varying situations.
Organized by the Spring Station’s Women’s Club of Spring Hill, the classes will be taught by Spring Hill Fire Department staff, and cost $10 a ticket.
Known as Family & Friends CPR, the class will teach participants how to perform hands-only CPR, child CPR, how to use an automated external defibrillator, infant CPR, as well as choking relief for infants, children and adults.
Family & Friends CPR touts its classes as ideal for babysitters, new parents, students, and anyone wanting to learn the basics of CPR, regardless of experience. The format of the classes uses the American Heart Association’s (AHA) ‘practice while watching technique,’ which AHA says helps improve learning and retention.
The Spring Station’s Women’s Club is a local chapter of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, a nonprofit federation founded in 1890 that consists of over 3,000 women’s clubs across the United States. The organization advocates for civic improvements through volunteer community service. The Spring Hill chapter, called the Spring Station’s Women’s Club, was founded in 2010.
All attendees under 16 years-old must be accompanied by an adult. The classes will be held at the second Spring Hill Fire Station, located at 4237 Port Royal Road, Spring Hill, TN 37174.
