Community CPR Classes
We are better together! We know that the more members of our community who are comfortable with life-saving interventions such as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, the better. In partnership with Watauga Medics, our monthly community CPR courses are FREE to the public. The only cost is $7 which covers the American Heart Association CPR card issued to each participant at the end of the class. Sign up now!
