ACT FIRST AID CLASSES
ACT To Save a Life is our new one-hour first aid training that focuses on three skills you can use to save a life in the first few minutes of an emergency:
- Antidote for suspected opiate overdoses.
- CPR and AED training for cardiac arrest.
- Tourniquet for severe bleeding control.
ACT To Save A Life classes are offered on the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 6 p.m. at Lynnwood Civic Center Fire Station 15, 18800 44th Ave. W.
Classes are free, but you must register in advance.
June 20 class is FULL.
July 18, 5-6 p.m., class is FULL. We've added a second class for July 18, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Getting First Aid Certification
Our basic 1-hour ACT curriculum follows industry standards, but is not a first aid certification course.
More complete first aid classes are available through the American Red Cross and through private vendors.
The American Heart Association offers online first aid and CPR courses.
South County Fire encourages everyone to complete a nationally recognized first aid and CPR/AED course in addition to our ACT class.
First Aid Supplies
First aid supplies and prescriptions to reverse opioid overdoses can be found from a variety of sources:
CPR and AED: most schools and libraries and many public buildings have AED devices. See Life Assist AED Supplies.
