CPR

The Champaign Fire Department offers Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) classes to the public.  Citizens that are trained in CPR are able to make a difference in the lives of others by being able to recognize possible life threatening situations.  They are trained in the ability to recognize those that are in cardiac arrest or suffering from other life threatening emergencies, initiate early CPR, and deliver rapid defibrillation, the first three links of the American Heart Association’s Chain of Survival.

The Champaign Fire Department offers two American Heart Association classes, Heartsaver CPR AED and Healthcare Providers.

Heartsaver CPR AED:

  • Adult CPR and AED use.
  • Optional Modules in child CPR and AED use and infant CPR, including child and infant choking.
  • Designed for anyone with limited or no medical training.

Healthcare Providers:

  • Critical concepts in high-quality CPR.
  • The American Heart Association Chain of Survival.
  • 1-rescuer CPR and AED for adults, children and infants.
  • 2-rescuer CPR and AED for adults, children and infants.
  • Differences among adult, child and infant rescue techniques.
  • Bag-mask techniques for adults, children and infants.
  • Rescue breathing for adults, children and infants.
  • Relief of choking for adults, children and infants.
  • CPR with an advanced airway.
  • Designed for healthcare professionals who need to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings.
