When seconds count, someone may be counting on a nearby friend, relative, neighbor or resident to provide hands-only CPR. Hands-only CPR classes teach civilians how to provide medical help to cardiac arrest victims before professional medical responders arrive.
Residents can receive free hands-only CPR training in 30-minute sessions to be offered at 19 fire stations throughout Palm Beach County on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 9 a.m.
The sessions will be taught by students from the Palm Beach County School District medical magnet program, along with the Palm Beach State College paramedic students. Participants should wear comfortable clothes.
Local stations offering this course are Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Station #30 at 9610 Stribling Way in Wellington and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Station #28 at 1040 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. in Royal Palm Beach.
