Many lives could be saved if Berkeley residents take an American Heart Association CPR certification class.
Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2012
Safety Training Seminars is proud to announce their newest Berkeley American Heart Association CPR training school in Alameda County. The new location will be located at the corner of University Avenue & Shattuck Avenue near the Downtown Berkeley BART station. The American Heart Association classes offered to the public will be CPR, BLS for Healthcare Provider CPR, First-aid, ACLS, PALS, and phlebotomy classes. Students will receive official American Heart Association CPR certification cards after their training.
The American Heart Association estimates that 92% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if a family member performed CPR. Immediate CPR can double or even triple a victim’s chance of survival. It is important that the people of Berkeley come together to learn CPR & First-aid in case of a life-threatening emergency. The American Heart Association promotes the importance of early intervention and increasing public access to defibrillation. The AHA trains over 12 million people per year in their Emergency Cardiac Care programs. Their mission is to reduce disability and death from acute circulatory and respiratory emergencies by improving the chain of survival in every community and in every health care system.
In celebration of the opening of our new Berkeley CPR Classroom on May 1st, 2012, Safety Training Seminars will offer Free CPR Keychain Masks to all students who attend a CPR certification class in Berkeley during our first month in business. Many people would be reluctant to put their mouth on a victim that they do not know. However, when you have a Free keychain CPR mask, a rescuer would be more willing to help out. To register for one of these CPR classes, please visit our Berkeley CPR Classes website. If you are a parent, or involved in a Berkeley or Oakland parenting group, spread the word to your membership about the importance of learning CPR and First-aid by the American Heart Association. Safety Training Seminars is also available to teach CPR classes at schools, child care centers, health clubs, and businesses in Berkeley, Oakland, Richmond, or any other city in Alameda County.
Safety Training Seminars is proud to provide American Heart Association CPR classes to the residents of Berkeley, Oakland and Alameda County.
