Take a FREE Saturday CPR Class in February
Franklin Fire Department offers free CPR classes in honor of American Heart Month
Franklin, TN – In honor of American Heart Month, the Franklin Fire Department is offering free CPR classes on Saturdays in February – including a bonus fifth Saturday due to Leap Day.
The classes will take place on February 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29, from 9 AM to noon, in Franklin City Hall, 109 3rd Avenue South.
These non-certification classes are for individuals who want to learn CPR only. They are not for those who need a CPR card in order to meet a job requirement.
On each date, participants will learn adult, child, and infant CPR, how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and how to relieve a patient who is choking. The classes are recommended for those who are 12 years of age and older.
To register, click HERE, or contact the Franklin Fire Department at 615-791-3270.
According to the American Heart Association, immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
