GVFD Offers CPR And AED Training Feb 27 At Brookview

February is Heart Month. Take the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, and sign up to learn proper CPR and defibrillator operation.

The Golden Valley Fire Department will host a CPR and AED training course Feb 27, from 7 to 8 pm, at Brookview Golden Valley.

You could end up saving the life of a co-worker, family member, or even a stranger, says CPR instructor Stephen Baker. All it takes is one hour.

No previous CPR training is required. And even if you’ve had CPR training before, a refresher never hurts, Baker says. Some CPR best practices have changed in the last few years, and people with previous training may need to update their technique.

Heart disease and sudden cardiac arrest is the No. 1 killer in America. There are more than 400,000 sudden cardiac arrests each year in the USA. But statistics show higher survivability of victims when early, effective CPR is combined with the use of an automated external defibrillator.
