The free CPR training program launched by the Allen Fire Department early this year has been a big hit across town. AFD’s Tony Cooper has been very busy hosting classes on weeknights and weekends – sometimes multiple classes a week.
Save the Date
Tony will be hosting a class just for CERT & CFA next month, July 18th at 6:30 PM. The location will be nailed down soon and we will take formal registrations the first week of July. For now, mark this on your calendar so you don’t miss this chance to receive free CPR training.
Although CPR is not a skill we teach in CERT, we certainly promote it as supplemental learning as it is proven to save lives. Most Allen CERT members have received formal CPR training in the past but taking subsequent classes helps keep the procedures fresh in your mind. Additionally, CPR science is constantly evolving as case studies result in simpler methods and improved techniques.
