Free Community Classes
The Henderson Fire Department is committed to providing a safe place for people to live, work, and play. It has been proven that involved communities who know CPR and basic bleeding control help to save lives. We encourage all residents to attend a free community training class that includes Community “Hands-Only” CPR, Emergency Bleeding Control, and use of the PulsePoint App.
Community “Hands-Only” CPR
With 70 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happening at home, you could be the person performing life saving CPR. “Hands-Only” CPR, using only chest compressions, has been shown to be as effective as CPR with mouth to mouth resuscitation for adult victims of cardiac arrest when performed prior to arrival of medical responders. Community CPR training will provide training on Hands-Only Adult CPR.
Emergency Bleeding Control
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Emergency Bleeding Control training includes direct pressure and the use of a tourniquet.
The PulsePoint App allows the Henderson Fire Department to be connected to the community and empowers residents to respond to people in cardiac arrest before the arrival of the fire department. The PulsePoint App training class will cover use of the app. The PulsePoint App is available now for Apple and Android.
