CPR Training by Bluffton Township Fire District

The Bluffton Township Fire District provides training to individuals and local businesses in a wide variety of fire and life safety subjects, but we are most commonly asked to assist individuals or businesses with becoming CPR certified, either to meet regulations required for that company or merely for the benefit of its employees. Our CPR program covers different levels of certification so that we can best meet your specific needs or those of your organization.

Whether you are interested in becoming certified so you might help a loved one in need, or you work in a healthcare profession that requires it, we have a CPR course for you.

Our training follows American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, and upon completion, all participants will receive a certification card from the AHA certifying they have successfully completed an AHA course and are certified to the level of training received. The AHA certification is good for two (2) years from the date the training was completed.

Here is a list of the classes available:

WHAT IS CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions delivered to victims thought to be in cardiac arrest.  When cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops pumping blood.  CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain to “buy time” until normal heart function is restored.

Cardiac arrest is often caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation (VF).  When VF develops, the heart quivers and doesn’t pump blood. The victim in VF cardiac arrest needs CPR and delivery of a shock to the heart, called defibrillation.  Defibrillation eliminates the abnormal VF heart rhythm and allows the normal rhythm to resume.  Defibrillation is not effective for all forms of cardiac arrest but it is effective to treat VF, the most common cause of sudden cardiac arrest
