The first of two 2018 free CPR training sessions is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 17 at the Murphy Fire Station, and a second session will be conducted later in the year.
Fully qualified firefighter/paramedics from Murphy Fire Rescue will conduct the 15-minute classes, beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing every 20 minutes until noon. Classes are held in the training classroom of the Murphy Fire Station, 206 North Murphy Road. Parking is available at the City Hall lots.
“The classes represent a 15-minute investment of time that can mean adding years to a victim’s lifetime,” Fire Chief Del Albright said. “Unless you’re a medical professional or a trained first responder, an emergency at home with a cardiac arrest victim may present you with a life and death situation for which you may not be prepared.”
