DALY CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT
OFFERS TWO-DAY CPR CLASS

Last 'Heart Saver' Course This Year

Daly City - The Daly City Fire Department, in partnership with the American Heart Association, will offer a two-day course on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), from 6 to 9 p.m., on Monday, October 21st and Wednesday, October 23rd.

Students who complete the six-hour class will be issued a CPR card, which will remain valid for two years, as well as a CPR handbook. To be certified, attendees will need to pass a written exam and the "hands-on" manipulative test. Certification levels will be in Adult, Child and Infant CPR, as well as in FBAO (foreign body airway obstruction).

"The two-day CPR course gives family members life-saving techniques to use during an emergency, until professional medical assistance arrives on the scene. It provides some peace of mind to countless families, and is an invaluable service to the community," said Cole Stratton, Assistant Training Officer of the DCFD.

The non-refundable course fee is $55 for Daly City residents and $65 for non-residents. Seating is limited. Advanced registration is required no later than Wednesday, October 16, 2002. For reservations, contact the DCFD - Administration Office at (650) 991-8138.

The class will be held at 101 Lincoln Avenue, Daly City, near Fire Station No. 95, at the DCFD's Portable Classroom, adjacent to the Jefferson Elementary School District Office. Directions: From Westmoor Avenue, turn south to Edgemont Avenue. Go down the hill, until the street ends on Lincoln Avenue. The portable classroom will be at the rear left side of the parking lot.
