CPR/Stroke Classes for Seniors

Lear Hands-Only CPR flier

Of the many people who experience major medical emergencies each year, a number of the victims do not receive the help they need because their emergencies are not obvious—to themselves or passersby.

EMS has designed a free, non-certifiable course especially for seniors* to help them recognize the signs of stroke, learn hands-only CPR, and learn what to say to 911 dispatchers when someone is experiencing a medical emergency.

There will be a free, one-hour training at Balllard Community Center on Oct. 23 from 10:30-11:30 am.

Ballard Community Center
6020 28th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107
October 23, 2017
10:30 – 11:30 AM

Please consider taking the time to attend this class. You could be the difference in someone’s life.

* Notes: This class is intended for those 60 and older, but you will not be turned away if you attend.  This is a FREE class. No preregistration required. Just show up and sign in when you arrive. If you cannot attend one of the classes offered in October, there will be others offered in locations around Seattle through winter and spring of 2018.
