Learn CPR, Basic First Aid and More in Feb. 7 Class

The first aid awareness training is hosted by the Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission.

Injuries and medical emergencies happen without warning -- do you know how to respond?

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) will sponsor a First Aid Awareness Class on Thursday, February 7 from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Costick Center at 28600 Eleven Mile Road in Farmington Hills. The class will help you prepare for a medical emergency by providing a demonstration of what to do until first responders arrive or the victim can be transported. The class does not provide certification.  

Participants will rotate through one station every 15 minutes, with each subject taught by a first responder or first aid instructor. First aid subjects will include:

  • 9-1-1 Dispatch System

  • CPR

  • Use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator)

  • Choking

  • Bleeding Control

  • Burn Treatment

  • Splinting 

To register, call the Costick Center at 248-473-1800. For more information, contact EPC Vice Chair Tim Tutak at 248-417-0930 or tutakt@live.com
