The Fennimore Rescue Squad will be providing an open BLS for Healthcare Providers CPR course for anyone who needs certification or recertification on Monday April 6 at 6 p.m. at the Fennimore Fire Station. Interested students can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to guarantee a spot but walk-ins will be welcome if there is enough room.
For students affiliated with a volunteer or non-profit public safety agency, the cost will be $30 if you are certifying for the first time or need a copy of the most recent student manual; or $20 you are re-certifying and have the most current student manual. We can directly bill your agency for the cost if you wish. The cost for students not affiliated with a public safety agency will be an additional $5. The course fees go to support our efforts to strengthen the “Chain of Survival” for cardiac arrest patients in our community by increasing CPR awareness and training.
