CPR Plus Program at Fairview

Would you know what to do if:

  • you are alone and have a heart attack?
  • you are with someone having a heart attack or stroke?
  • you are alone and choking?
  • a family member is choking at the dinner table?
  • a drowning occurs in the backyard pool?

"Emergencies don't take place in the Emergency Room," says Donna Sena, RN. "Seconds count, and knowing CPR and emergency response measures such as the Heimlich maneuver saves lives."
 
Fairview Hospital's CPR Plus Program offers the following courses to the community:

  • Basic Life Support (CPR)
  • Friends and Family CPR Program
  • Basic First Aid
  • Heartsaver CPR / AED Training
  • Spanish Heartsaver CPR
  • Pediatric CPR (Birth to 1 Year)
  • Babysitter Safety Course (American Red Cross)
  • Pet CPR and First Aid (American Red Cross)
  • Chokesaver Classes through  Berkshire County Boards of Health

Each class includes classroom lecture, hands on training, discussion and testing. The teacher-student ratio is 1:6 to assure an optimum learning environment.  
 
Programs can be requested for groups and businesses.
