Lincoln County Medical Center, will host a American Heart Association Family and Friends CPR class will be held at the Medical Center on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. The Family and Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only® CPR, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR and relief of choking in an adult, child or infant. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment by using the American Heart Association’s (AHA) research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family and Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a course completion card in CPR for their job. This course is ideal for schools and students, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life.
