Learn CPR – RQHR PAD Program

The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region’s Public Access Defibrillation Program will be teaching a basic CPR course on Nov. 5 to help people learn the life-saving skills or brush up on old training.

Being confident in performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation is important in the event that a family member, friend or even stranger suffers a sudden cardiac arrest.

This free session provides insight on: how to recognize the signs of sudden cardiac arrest, high-quality chest compression instruction and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The half-hour classes covers hands-only CPR and AED. While the class gives full instruction on how to do chest compressions until paramedics arrive, participants will not become certified.

A certified CPR class is four-hours long. If interested in becoming certified, contact Amber Gorman, RQHR’s Public Access Defibrillation Program co-ordinator and Advanced-Care Paramedic by email at:  pad@rqhealth.ca or by calling, (306) 766-6265.

The class takes place Nov. 5 from 1-2  p.m. at the South Leisure Centre in the art room.

When and where: Sunday November 5th from 1-2 PM at the South Leisure Centre in the Art Room.

Cost: FREE
