Cumberland EMS to Offer Monthly CPR and AED Training
Cumberland Emergency Medical Services will offer monthly cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) training. The training will consist of the American Heart Association’s Family & Friends CPR Course. The course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and mild and severe airway obstruction relief for adults, children, and infants. The Friends and Family CPR course is designed for individuals who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. The training will be supplemented by content on emergency bleeding control. The training will be offered on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 9:30 pm in the Community Room of the Cumberland Public Safety Complex located at 1379 Diamond Hill Road. Individuals interested in participating in the training should reserve a seat by emailing EMS@cumberlandri.org or by calling 401-334-3090, extension 5.
