Perrysburg Fire Division and Way Public Library are pleased to offer courses in life-saving CPR skills and First Aid classes.
An emergency can occur anytime... the sad truth is most people don’t survive a cardiac arrest. Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it’s too late. Fewer than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby. If a family member, friend or infant in your care had a cardiac or first aid emergency could you recognize the signs and respond quickly and appropriately?
The American Heart Association offers a variety of courses to teach you lifesaving skills.
- All classes are taught by a certified instructor from the City of Perrysburg Fire Division
- Class size is limited to 20 students.
- Registration for all classes is required.
To read more about specific classes offered follow the link(s) below.
