In order to better serve our community, the Evanston Fire Department is offering to the general public two CPR courses that are authorized by the American Heart Association.
The Health Care Provider course (Professional), is approximately 4 hours, and the Heart Saver course (General Public), is approximately 3 hours.
The early initiation of quality CPR has proven to increase the survival rate of patients who suffer a cardiac arrest. Combining community CPR with early defibrillation and advanced life support has proven to save lives.
