3/6/2018 - Hands-Only CPR and AED Training at the 2018 Fairfield Health & Fitness Expo on March 11th

The Town of Fairfield and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce will offer Hands-Only CPR and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training on Sunday, March 11th at the 2018 Fairfield Health & Fitness Expo.

This non-certification training takes less than 15 minutes, and provides basic instruction in hands-only CPR technique, and general AED awareness.

An AED is a portable device that can be used to deliver an electric shock and restore a normal heartbeat to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. Modern AEDs are safe, easy to use, provide step-by-step voice instructions, and can be used by almost anyone.

Learn how to help save a life in minutes! Demonstrations run every 15 minutes, no need to register in advance. Hands-on demos are provided by Emergency Medical Group, and American Medical Response of Fairfield County.
