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.
