Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a valuable life saving skill everyone should know. Shaler-Hampton EMS offers CPR classes throughout the year. Two types of CPR classes are offered. The first type is the “Heart Saver” Class, which is designed for the person who wants a general understanding of CPR. The second type is the “Healthcare Provider” Class. This class is more advanced and is designed for the healthcare professional who may need to perform CPR on a regular basis. Both classes also cover pediatric CPR and teach the proper use of the Heimlich Maneuver. Please call 412-487-6590 to schedule a training session.
This course teaches how to effectively recognize and treat emergencies in the critical first minutes after an injury occurs and before emergency medical services personnel arrive. A variety of emergency situations are covered, including: burns, severe allergic reactions, shock, seizures, choking, bleeding, broken bones, and spinal injuries. Also, as an option, this course can be bundled with training in Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and use of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). Upon completion of the course, participants receive certification from the American Heart Association for First Aid. Classes are held for groups of ten or more, with discounts available for larger groups. If requested, the class will be taught at your location. Classes are six to eight hours in length. To set up a class for your group, please call 412-487-6590.
