Hayes Green Beach CPR course offered Wednesday, Nov. 28

The HGB EMS Department and the American Heart Association are offering a CPR class Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the Charlotte West Side Fire Station to help you be prepared in the event of an emergency.
 
Every year more than 480,000 American adults die of a heart attack or its complications.  About half of these deaths result from sudden cardiac arrest, an early complication of some heart attacks that can occur within seconds – even before emergency personnel arrive. Too many times victims die from these complications because bystanders don’t know what to do.  
 
During the class, which is from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., participants learn adult, child, and infant CPR, and how to use the automated external defibrillator. A two-year American Heart Association certification card will be issued. This course meets State of Michigan requirements for those who work in childcare and group homes, or who need professional certifications for job requirements.  
 
The cost of the class is $25 and it is located at 111 E. Lawrence Ave., in Charlotte, Mich. Class size is limited, so early registration is encouraged – contact Dan Sowles at dsowles@hgbhealth.com or call 517-541-5912.
