CPR & First Aid Classes

CPR Schedule

The pre-hospital medical care provided by the Woodstock Fire/RescueDistrict and local health systems is outstanding; but we need your help! The American Heart Association states that only one-third of sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and a strong majority of Americans do not even know what an automated external defibrillator (AED) is.

Here in Woodstock, we offer American Heart Association CPR classes for the community, businesses and healthcare providers. In each class, our professional, experienced instructors teach when and how to perform CPR, why it is important, and how to use an AED. Remember that sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere. When it is your opportunity to save a life, will you be ready?

If you are required by your employer or by preference to receive training through the American Red Cross, you may click the link below to search for local offerings. Woodstock Fire/Rescue District does not offer American Red Cross CPR courses.

Heartsaver vs. BLS Courses – What’s the difference?

Heartsaver courses are designed for individuals without prior medical experience or training. For most applications, Heartsaver courses are the appropriate choice for the general public.

BLS courses are designed for healthcare professionals and related fields. These courses use medical terminology and assume that the students has basic medical knowledge. If this course is for employment purposes, be sure to check with your employer to determine which course is preferred.
