CPR-First Aid seminar to be held at Hope Community Church

Accidents and cardiac emergencies happen all too often, and being prepared for them saves lives. Hope Community Church is welcoming back instructor Tim O’Connor for a third annual CPR-First Aid class on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This popular class provides the first-response skills we need at work, in the home or on the road,” shared Pastor Scott Swix, “and Tim O’Connor is an excellent, enthusiastic and humorous instructor.”

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to provide infant, child and adult CPR and first aid, including stating the warning signs of a heart attack, operate an Automatic External Defibrillation (AED), demonstrate CPR techniques on a mannequin, protect themselves against blood-born pathogens, perform an emergency situation scene survey, and treat a variety of illnesses and injuries. Certificates will be issued at the end of class, valid for childcare providers and others.

O’Connor, certified by the American Heart Association and National Safety Council, is a firefighter/emergency medical technician and a member of the Kentwood Professional Firefighters Union. He has been conducting classes for 16 years.

A $10 fee covers the cost of the class and completion certificate. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided. Please RSVP to Hope Community Church by Wednesday, Feb. 22, by calling (616) 874-4673 or e-mailing to office@hoperockford.org. Hope Community Church is located at 7000 Myers Lake Ave., Rockford, a quarter-mile north of Belding Rd.
