2024 CPR Training FlyerDo you know what to do if someone near you goes into cardiac arrest? In these situations, the difference between life & death could depend on someone in the immediate vicinity knowing how to perform CPR. If you're unsure of what to do in these situations, or would like to refresh your CPR knowledge, the Arlington Heights Fire Department invites you to sign up for an upcoming CPR course. 

About the Heartsaver CPR Course
The Fire Department's Heartsaver CPR course for the lay responder teaches recognition and emergency resuscitation techniques for adult heart attack and stroke; injury and cardiac arrest prevention; treatment of cardiac emergencies in adults and infants; and choking in adults and infants. The course does not cover cardiac emergencies in children or choking in children.

A course completion card from the American Heart Association will be issued to participants who have successfully completed the CPR course objectives and practical testing.

CPR classes are scheduled from 6:00 to 9:30 PM at the Arlington Heights Fire Department Administration Building located at 1150 N. Arlington Heights Road in the Training room on the 2nd floor.

The cost is $20 per Arlington Heights resident and $50 per person for non-residents. Fee includes textbook and CPR card. Due to scheduling of personnel and classroom, registration fees are non-refundable.  In the event a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
