The Fire Department is pleased to announce that the recent community CPR classes provided by our organization in November and February proved to be extremely successful events at which 36 total attendees were provided training in adult, child, and infant CPR and choking, and the effective use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s). Our instructor staff of Firefighter/Paramedic Kirk Rounseville and Firefighter/EMT Amanda Rounseville described the group as being extremely eager to learn and exceptionally dedicated to the program.
Our organization would like to thank all of the attendees for their commitment to learning these life saving techniques, for assisting us in our efforts to saturate the community with residents capable of establishing an immediate medical response to a sudden cardiac arrest event, and for enhancing our status as a Heart Safe Community.
Brewster Fire will be hosting additional CPR classes in the near future. Interested residents should monitor our website at Brewsterfire.com and local newspapers for dates and times.
