Foxwall offers periodic CPR and First Aid classes. Check our events calendar for details. Groups may also contact Foxwall to schedule a class of their own.
The following classes are available, all following the curriculum outlined by the American Heart Association:
Heartsaver CPR is a 4 hour course, providing instruction in CPR for adults, infants and children, use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and first aid for choking. This course is appropriate for the any person interested in learning about basic life saving techniques.
BLS for Healthcare Providers is a 4 hour course for Healthcare professionals (EMTs, doctors, nurses, dentists, etc.). Topics include CPR (1 and 2-rescuer), foreign body airway obstruction, and use of an AED.
Heartsaver First Aid is a 4 hour course teaching basic first aid. Topics include common medical emergencies (heart attack, stroke, diabetic emergencies, and more), and injuries (sprains and strains, burns, cuts, and more).
- Please make sure you pick the right class. Most life guards, camp counselors, personal trainers need the Heartsaver CPR course only. If you are training to work in a health care environment, you need BLS for Healthcare Providers.
- Issuance of cards takes up to 6 weeks from the date of the class. If you need a card by a specific deadline, plan ahead. We cannot expidite card issuance.
Cost is $30 per person, per class for courses taught at Foxwall EMS. Special arrangements can be made to teach groups off-site, at a fee of $40 per person per class.
NOTE: Payment must be received no later than 1 week prior to the start of the class.
Payment should be made with a check payable to “Foxwall EMS”. Checks may be mailed to our station:
