CPR classes

The Franklin Fire Department is offering free CPR classes every Saturday in February.

In honor of American Heart Month, the Franklin Fire Department is offering free CPR classes on Saturdays in February — including a bonus fifth Saturday due to Leap Day.

The classes will take place on Feb. 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, from 9 a.m. to noon, in Franklin City Hall at 109 Third Ave. S. 

These non-certification classes are for individuals who want to learn CPR only. They are not for those who need a CPR card in order to meet a job requirement.

On each date, participants will learn adult, child and infant CPR, how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and how to relieve a patient choking. The classes are recommended for those who are 12 years of age and older. 

To register, visit www.franklintn.gov/CPR, or contact the Franklin Fire Department at 615-791-3270.

According to the American Heart Association, immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
