Community Training

We are now proud to offer a community CPR course that can teach the fundamental basics of what to do when an adult suddenly collapses and is in cardiac arrest.  We call this program the 3 C’s of CPR, and our highly trained volunteers can teach it to you in as little as 10 minutes.  We are offering this program absolutely FREE to members of the community.  Call the station at 873-2122 to send us a message.

In addition to the 3 C’s of CPR, we offer CPR courses that are taught by American Heart Association certified instructors.  These courses cover adult, child, and infant CPR, as well as how to use an AED and how to help someone who is choking.  These courses can be tailored somewhat to fit a variety of age groups or workplaces.  All participants in an AHA-approved course will be issued a 2-year AHA certification card.

Dedicated to helping even the smallest of community members

Educating your children about what to do in an emergency is critically important. We’ve put together these links and activities to help start the conversation with your child or children about what to do if someone is sick or injured and needs help.

While you are teaching your child or children how to dial 911. It is equally important to teach them not to dial 911 “unless they have a true emergency”. People make mistakes every day and that includes accidentally dialing 911. We encourage anyone who dials 911 to stay on the line and speak to the dispatcher even if it is an accidental dial. This will save valuable time and allow the dispatcher to continue answering emergent calls.

Again, Non-emergent calls to the 911 dispatch centers take up valuable time. The dispatcher taking the call must call the number back to verify everything is alright. This can be very time consuming and interferes with true emergent calls. Please don’t allowing any child/children to play with a cell phone or house phone for anything other than it’s intended use.

Note: Obstruction of Governmental Administration Law – anyone can be charged for violating this law from continuously dialing 911 without having a true emergency.
