Red Cross CPR/AED Course offering
In the past year, 220,000 Americans died of sudden cardiac arrest almost one every two minutes. A quarter of these deaths could likely have been prevented if an automated external defibrillator (AED) had been available for immediate use and people were trained to use it. An AED is a device that can reestablish an effective heart rhythm. In January and February, the American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula will be offering classes in Adult CPR and AED to help keep families safer. Classes are available in most of the counties we serve in order to better serve the community. Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling (800) 777-6620. Please take note that there are a minimum number of attendees required for classes to run. Call or visit our website: to get more information and learn about all the classes we offer.
