Free CPR Training
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can occur anytime and the reality is that many people are not prepared or properly trained to recognize and assist someone in need of CPR. The Corona Fire Department strives to arrive on scene of all emergencies rapidly on an average of less than 5 minutes. The early intervention of bystander CPR can increase a patient’s survivability. Scientific studies show that early CPR, defibrillation from an AED and initiation of 9-1-1 services can increase an individual’s chances of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) survival by 2 to 3 times.
In our continuing effort to educate the community, the Corona Fire Department is offering our free CPR Training Program to any interested residents, school, group or business on Saturday, December 15, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The training is conducted by Corona Fire Department firefighters and paramedics. The class will be held at the Corona Fire Training Center – 735 Public Safety Way, in Corona. Training consist of video instructions, lecture and hands-on practice. Over the course of two hours you will learn:
- Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest
- Importance of early activation of 9-1-1
- Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with and emphasis on chest compressions
- Familiarization with an automated external defibrillator (AED) and the need for rapid defibrillation
