WEST FARGO — The West Fargo Fire Department is offering CPR training 6-10 p.m. Wednesday, June 15.

The certified CPR class meets all state certification requirements. There is a $50 charge per attendee. Registration for this course is available online.

In addition to providing CPR certification, the class will cover the basics of the PulsePoint app. PulsePoint is a 911-connected mobile app that alerts nearby bystanders who can help victims before professional help arrives. Residents are encouraged to learn CPR, get the app and join the West Fargo Fire Department in saving lives. The PulsePoint app can be downloaded online for iOS and Android.

The certified CPR training is a part of the West Fargo Fire Department’s Cardiac Ready Community program. The Cardiac Ready Community program focuses on educating community members to recognize the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and know how to access care quickly. Information on the Cardiac Ready Community program can be found online.
