In honor of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Awareness month, Geisinger Holy Spirit will offer a free CPR class on Saturday, June 3. American Heart Association-trained instructors will be teaching this class in the auditorium at Geisinger Holy Spirit, 503 N. 21st St., Camp Hill.
“We want people in the community to learn CPR so they can help a victim of cardiac arrest until EMS arrives,” said Christy Liddington, BSN, RN, Training Center Coordinator. “CPR is easy to learn and we are offering it free so more people take advantage of this opportunity.”
This course will teach participants the skills needed to successfully perform CPR on a victim of cardiac arrest. In addition, they will learn how to help a person who is choking. AEDs are common throughout our communities and are easy to use. Course attendees will receive hands-on training with an AED so they will know exactly what to do in case of emergency.
The “Heartsaver AED” class is intended to teach the lay rescuer. This class begins at 9 a.m. and should end by 1 p.m. After successfully completing the course, each participant will receive a course completion card. To register for this free class, please call 717-972-4262. Space is limited.
