CPR Class offered at Swedetown Chalet Jan. 25 (2016)
What if you are out skiing or hiking and someone collapses with cardiac arrest? Would you know what to do while waiting for 911 responders to arrive?
The American Heart Association – Family and Friends Adult Hands-only CPR class will be offered at the Swedetown Chalet Monday, January 25, at 7 p.m. The course, offered in cooperation with the Aspirus Keweenaw Education Department, includes chest compression instruction and practice on dummies as well as demonstration of an AED (automated defibrillator).

Cost for the session is $15 and includes take-home materials. To register, use email to send your name, email and phone number to the Swedetown Trails Club: firstname.lastname@example.org
