Looking for CPR or first-aid classes?

Only 32% of cardiac arrest victims receive CPR from a bystander.  Performing CPR immediately after a sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.

The Arcata Volunteer Firefighters Association (AVFA) offers cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator (AED), and First-Aid classes for lay rescuers.  In these classes, students learn how to recognize the signs of a cardiac emergency, and how to sustain life with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation until emergency medical help can arrive.  This is a skill anyone in the community can learn.

Basic classes offered ​are NOT suitable for those needing Professional Rescuer or Health Professional CPR.
