CASCADE HEALTH TO OFFER INDIVIDUAL AND EMPLOYER ON-SITE CPR/AED CLASSES

Trainings will be offered at a variety of times and locations
Eugene, Ore. (September 14, 2020) – Cascade Health, one of Lane County’s largest community-based nonprofit health care organizations will be offering initial and re-certification classes for Adult CPR / AED & First Aid. The classes will be offered at Cascade Health’s headquarters for individuals, as well as employer onsite trainings for entire teams.

“We realize it’s often difficult to close down a department so staff can get the training they need, says Ryan Freeman, Cascade Health’s assistant manager for Mobile Health. “That’s why we are offering classes for individual sign-ups to minimize scheduling challenges as well as whole-team onsite options.”

The course will be taught by certified CPR instructors and will be fully compliant with Oregon Health Authority COVID-19 guidelines.

According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests happen each year outside of a hospital and that correctly administered CPR can triple the chance of survival.

To find out more and to sign up for individual or on-sight classes, go to cascadehealth.org or call 541-228-3009.
