Thousands of people die each year in situations where first aid could have made a difference. First aid training could literally mean the difference between life and death. Do you know how to help someone who is choking or having a seizure?
Each year, RiverView Health offers several first aid classes to the public. These classes cover first aid for acute injuries and sudden illnesses such as burns, bites, poisoning, and seizures.
Each class is four-hours, from 6 to 10 pm, at the RiverView Home Care building, 721 South Minnesota Street, Crookston. The cost of a class, including the book and card, is $50. You must pay in advance to save your spot.
Class dates for 2023 will be on the following Thursdays: Feb. 2, May 4, Aug. 3, and Nov. 2.
The class is an American Heart Association (AHA) Community Training Center affiliated course. Contracted Community Training Centers (CTCs) and their affiliated sites are the only facilities permitted to offer AHA courses to the public and professionals through their affiliated instructors and programs.
To register or for more information on this class or other courses offered through the CTC, call 281-9405.
The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the AHA.
