Did you know studies have shown that immediate CPR followed by defibrillation within 3–5 minutes of sudden cardiac arrest dramatically improves survival? As many as 400,000 people in the US will suffer from cardiac arrest this year. The majority of these individuals will die before even reaching the hospital. It is fact that if more people were trained in CPR, the amount of survivors could double or triple. Statistics show that among the American population, 70% may not even respond during a cardiac arrest emergency because they are uneducated and do not know how to apply the lifesaving techniques of CPR. This is a sad statistic and the American Heart Association’s mission is to improve these numbers. By getting CPR certified. |
If you are interested in earning a basic CPR / AED certification, or need to renew your current CPR certification we can accommodate you. The Tiki Island Police Department have 3 Officers who are American Heart Association CPR instructor certified and ready to meet your needs. If you are interested in learning an invaluable skill that could potentially save a friend or family members life, feel free to contact Cpl. Kevin LaGatella for pricing and to arrange a class date. This course is open to everyone. We also offer the flexibility of breaking the course into two days, or reserving a private class for your company, family, or friends. At the end of the course you will receive your American Heart Association CPR certification card.
Courses offered are as follows:
CPR Certification Courses for Healthcare Providers
• Basic Life Support (BLS): This course is designed for people in the healthcare profession that may need CPR and other emergency response skills for their jobs. The BLS certification classes, including exams, take about 4.5 hours to compete.
CPR Certification Courses for non-Healthcare Providers
• Heartsaver CPR AED: This classroom-based course will train you to be proficient in the use of CPR as well as an AED. If you need to get certified as a workplace or school requirement, then this is most likely the course you need to take.
• Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED: This is the same as the Heartsaver CPR AED course but includes extra modules to learn the basics of responding to and managing a first aid emergency.
