Friends and Family CPR Classes in February

Free Friends and Family CPR February Fridays in Brentwood

Recently the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of people who are surviving cardiac arrests. This is due to three primary factors; new hypothermia protocols, increased public access to Automatic Electronic Defibrillators (AEDs), and initiation of bystander CPR. With the help of citizens, the Department hopes to see that trend continue.

CPR is not difficult or time consuming to learn.  In the month of February, the Brentwood Fire & Rescue Department is offering free classes on Fridays to the public at the Brentwood Library.  Each class lasts approximately 2 ½ hours and offers training on infant, child, and adult CPR.  For adult CPR, participants will be taught both traditional and “hands only” CPR (no mouth-to-mouth breathing).  This class will utilize the American Heart Association’s “Family and Friends” curriculum, therefore no CPR card will be issued.  More information can be found on the AHA website at

Only one Friday commitment is required to learn these lifesaving skills.  For more information or to sign up, contact firefighter Scott Barnes at or call 371-2200 ext. 4523
