Make a date with Scottsdale Fire Feb. 10-16 to learn a Hands-only CPR and how to use an AED. Various dates/locations!

For the third year, Scottsdale Fire Department is hosting free presentations Valentine’s week to teach residents how to become a life saver. A person in cardiac arrest has very little chance of survival unless a bystander or loved one takes immediate action until paramedics arrive.

During these free presentations, individuals will learn to perform Hands-Only CPR and use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to shock the heart. It is simple to do, safe, does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, and can dramatically improve a person’s chance of survival.

Fifteen free 90-minute community presentations have been scheduled citywide to teach the simple step-by-step actions to take during a cardiac emergency. Please note, no CPR certification cards will be issued at these presentations.

Advance registration is strongly encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome. To register, visit www.scottsdaleaz.gov/fire/HandsOnlyCPR. For more information, call (480) 312-8000.
