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.
Sept. 19 class is full.
Group ACT First Aid Training
Do your staff, scouts, sports officials or other large groups need basic first aid training?
For groups over 20, we can schedule your own ACT first aid presentation. We can come to your location for a special event or regularly scheduled meeting.
Please request your group class at least 3 weeks in advance.
You can start learning CPR even before taking our ACT First Aid class.
>> Watch the Hands Only CPR Training Video from the American Heart Association.
CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double a victim's chance of survival.
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 certifies private training companies and also 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.
