Free Life-saving CPR and Stop the Bleed Training Classes Coming to Hendricks County Throughout 2023

Danville, IN- Beginning April 10th, the Hendricks County Health Department in conjunction with the Hendricks County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) will be hosting free CPR/AED and Stop the Bleed classes around the county during 2023.

Every year, almost 400,000 cardiac arrests occur in the United States outside of a hospital setting, and four out of five incidents occur in the home1. Likewise, uncontrolled bleeding remains as the top cause of preventable death from trauma and is responsible for 35% of all pre-hospital deaths2.

These classes will teach life-saving skills to the community that may help individuals prepare for an unexpected emergency. When done correctly, timely CPR after a cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. The CPR courses will cover responding to infant-adult choking, CPR, and AED use. Participants will receive a certificate of completion, although it is not an American Heart Association certificate.
