American Heart Association® Heartsaver® Course Information
Thank you for your interest in CPR & AED training
The Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Department is offering American Heart Association®, CPR/AED Heartsaver® training. UMCVFD wishes to provide up-to-date CPR and AED training to advance wellness and preparedness in our community. The class is taught by our American Heart Association certified teacher and upon successful completion each student receives a CPR Certification card from American Heart Association, valid for two years.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, SCA, sudden cardiac arrest, occurs more than 300,000 times per year in the USA. Often, survival from SCA depends on fast action from bystanders and family members, and the use of CPR and an AED before emergency services arrives. Proper CPR & AED training empowers bystanders and family members to recognize SCA, call 911, begin CPR, and use an AED.
