A Heartsaver CPR/AED and first aid course will be held on Saturday, September 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The course will be conducted by Atlantic Training Center at Holy Faith Lutheran Church (104 Paradise Road, Oak Ridge, across from Paradise Knolls School).
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique that is useful in emergencies in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped, such as heart attacks or near drownings. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that diagnoses life-threatening heart problems and treats them through defibrillation, which allows the heart to reestablish its proper rhythm. Having these skills could save someone’s life.
