A.C.T. FIRST AID CLASSES
A.C.T. is our new one-hour first aid training that focuses on three skills you can use to save a life in the first five minutes of an emergency:
- Antidote for suspected opiate overdoses.
- CPR and AED training for cardiac arrest.
- Tourniquet for severe bleeding control.
A.C.T. classes are offered on the third Thursday of each month, 6-7 p.m., at Martha Lake Fire Station 21, 16819 13th Ave. W, Lynnwood.
Classes are free, but you must register in advance.
First Aid Certification
A.C.T. First Aid is is not a certification course. South County Fire encourages everyone to complete a nationally recognized first aid and CPR/AED course in addition to our A.C.T. class.
Local first aid classes are listed on the American Red Cross website.
CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double a victim's chance of survival. And 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home, so the life you save is likely to be someone you love.
You can start learning CPR even before taking our A.C.T. First Aid class.
