Why do you need to learn CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, performed properly and promptly can help victims survive until the ambulance personnel trained in advanced medical techniques arrive on the scene. Almost two thirds of deaths from heart attacks occur before the victim reaches a hospital. Many of these deaths can be prevented if victims received prompt help.

Should you make the commitment to learn CPR...

Perhaps a loved one suffers from heart disease. Maybe your job handles medical emergencies. No matter what your reason, it is important to realize that just knowing how to properly perform CPR will make you a more useful member of your community. Brain death occurs within 4-6 minutes after the heart stops beating. Speed in starting CPR and calling 911 is the key to helping save lives.

Which courses do we offer?

FREE for Winthrop Harbor residents, and at a nominal fee for non-residents, we offer the following courses throughout the year;

-Basic CPR / AED - Learn CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

-CPR / AED / First-Aid - Learn CPR, how to use an AED and basic First-Aid techniques.

-Healthcare Provider CPR - This course is tailored to those employed in some medical field (fee applies to residents & non-residents for this course only)

Click the attached document for the schedule of upcoming training courses, including dates and fee information.

How to sign up…

Call or stop by the fire station during normal business hours (847-872-5957). Or email Assistant Chief Alicia McCoy (amccoy@winthropharbor.com) or Administrative Assistant Donna Kauppi (dkauppi@winthropharbor.com) for more information and they will discuss which course option is best for your needs.
