JCHC offering CPR classes

The Johnson County Healthcare Center is now offering CPR classes for members of the public.

The classes are offered on the third Thursday of every other month from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

This class is great for daycares, law enforcement officers, babysitters, etc.

The AHA does not mandate a minimum age requirement for learning CPR. The ability to perform CPR is based more on body strength than age. Studies have shown that children as young as 9 years old can learn and retain CPR skills. Please speak with an AHA Instructor or Training Center if you have any concerns.

The cost of the class is $35. That cost includes your card, a book and a pocket mask.

Payment is required prior to the start of class. No payments will be accepted at the class. You must stop by the JCHC's business office, located at 497 W. Lott St., to pay. The business office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

All classes are located in the Lake Angeline Conference Room at the Johnson County Healthcare, 497 W. Lott Street in Buffalo. Each class is capped at nine students.
