CPR/AED Training at Central United Methodist Church
Location: 276 W. First Street, Denton
February is Heart Month. There will be a CPR class on Saturday, February 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the hut. Registration will start at 8:30 along with a light breakfast. The class (AHA) will be taught by Lewis Rogers a Certified instructor through the Rowan Cabarrus Community College. We at Central feel that it is important that we have people trained, not only in CPR, but how to use an AED. Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after a sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. We are opening this up to the community. If you would like to attend, please contact our church office at 336-859-3502. Cost is $15.00 for your certification card.
