American Heart Association CPR:
To increase survival rates among cardiac arrest victims, Ashland Fire & Rescue is offering CPR classes accredited by The American Heart Association. Classes are available monthly to the general public and healthcare professionals. Onsite business and private/group classes are also available by scheduling in advance.
Statistics indicate less than one-third of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR. Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victimís chance of survival.

Students who do not pre-pay may be turned away if there are no seats remaining in the class. We accept cash, credit card, or check payable to the City of Ashland. COURSE FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Group trainings are available upon requests. In an effort to help us better serve the communityís requests the following steps have been implemented:
Step 1. Contact our office. When inquiring consider the following questions:
What certification course are you pursuing?
How many are seeking certification?
What is the preferred date for training?
Step 2. Determine a training date. In collaboration, we will determine a training date that best fits the needs of both parties involved. Payment must be made at least 30 days in advance of the training date to confirm.
Step 3. Make payment. Confirmation of the training is only made via payment. We do not provide refunds; therefore, changes will not be considered once payment is rendered. We charge in increments of eight students.
Step 4. Submit a class roster. Roster should include the correct spelling of each participantís name and address where they would like their certification card mailed.
Step 5. Pick up participant study manuals. Read the manual prior to the class date. Training materials are included in the cost of certification. The materials can used for future reference.
