WPPN offering Free  Irish Heart Foundation Heartsaver CPR AED Training

WPPN is offering its members FREE HEARTSAVER CPR AED TRAINING which will be delivered by Mullingar First Responders. This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). 

This Heartsaver CPR AED Course takes approximately 3 hours to complete and teaches the basic techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and the relief of choking for adults, children and infants.

Participant who can demonstrate high quality CPR at the end of the course will receive an IHF/AHA Heartsaver AED course completion card which is valid for two years.

Last year in Ireland there were more than 5,000 cardiac arrests – 70 per cent of these happened in the home. CPR is a vital step in the chain of survival after a cardiac arrest. If you have been taught CPR, you are 10 times more likely to respond appropriately in an emergency.

This training will take place in Mullingar and Athlone on the following dates and times:
