Heathcare Center Offering Classes

Salina Family Healthcare Center is planning some upcoming classes.

According to the organization they will host  upcoming CPR, AED, & First Aid classes.

“I took a call late last year asking if our clinic provided community CPR classes. Historically, we’ve only provided CPR classes to our employees. I asked around and the idea really took off on its own,” said Genell Heimer, Outreach Supervisor.

“We are really excited to offer both Basic Life Support for healthcare providers and Heartsaver CPR classes for anyone who doesn’t work in healthcare. Most cardiac arrests occur outside of healthcare settings and quality CPR is the single most valuable action someone can take to save a life before medical help arrives. Special thanks to our Saline Co Fire Dept and LifeTouch EMS for guiding us through starting this program. They have both been extremely helpful to make this education program successful at Salina Family Healthcare

The first Heartsaver class will take place this Saturday from 8a-12p at Salina Family Healthcare Center, 651 E. Prescott. Each class will go over adult and pediatric CPR, how to use an AED, and basic first aid training. Instructors are certified through the American Heart Association. Participants will receive a two-year certification after the completion of the course. The cost of the Heartsaver class is $75.

The next class, on May 25th from 2-6pm, is just for teens aged 12-18. This class is especially recommended for teens who plan to babysit, be camp counselors, and/or coach or officiate sports.

Please register for either class by calling Salina Family Healthcare Center’s Outreach Department at 785-825-7251, ext 642.
