(Westport, CT; March 17, 2014) –

Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Service (WVEMS) announces it will be

offering free Hands-Only CPR training sessions for the general public. Students will

learn how to perform hands-only CPR (no mouth-to-mouth) for an adult who does

not show signs of life, how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and

how to assist an adult who is choking and cannot breathe. Hands-Only CPR takes

only 30 minutes to learn; it is NOT a certification-level class.

Classes will take place on Friday March 21, 2014; one at 9:00AM and a second

at 10:00AM, in the training classroom of the Westport Police/EMS Headquarters

building, located at 50 Jesup Road. Participants need to attend only one 30-

minute session, at the time of their choosing. Participants should use the

Training Division entrance on the west side of the building (facing the Library).

Please do not park in spaces designated for the Police Department.

Pre-registration is required in order to ensure a proper ratio of instructors to

students. Sign up by sending an e-mail to cpr@westportems.org, or call our CPR
