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 at alternating locations:
Feb. 21, 5- 6 p.m. at Lynnwood Fire Station 15, 18800 44th Ave W.
March 21, 6-7 p.m. at Martha Lake Fire Station 21, 16819 13th Ave. W., Lynnwood.

First Aid Certification
Our 1-hour curriculum follows industry standards, but is not a full certification course.
Local first aid certification 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.
