FARMINGTON — Franklin Memorial Hospital will offer an American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid and CPR course from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage medical conditions, choking or sudden cardiac arrest emergencies in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives.

Students will learn how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock, and other first aid emergencies. This course also teaches adult CPR and AED use.

This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in first aid, CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory or other requirements.

The cost is $60 and includes the book. Registration and payment is required prior to the course. The number of participants is limited by American Heart Association’s guidelines. Another course is planned for January. To register or for additional information, call Franklin Memorial Hospital’s Education Department at 779-2381.
