Free community CPR certification classes offered

The City of Westlake Fire Department has teamed up with St. John Medical Center and University Hospitals Community Outreach to offer free CPR training for local community members. These classes are open to adults but not limited to Westlake residents.

Participants will learn HeartSaver CPR/AED for adult, child and infant. The certification from the American Heart Association will be sent as an e-card to those who complete the class.

“Becoming trained in CPR can mean the difference between life and death in certain medical emergencies,” said Rich Mecklenburg, an instructor for University Hospitals.

  • Feb. 14
