    The Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District will offer several Blended Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) classes to the community in 2013.
     “The key to saving a life could be as simple as being prepared in the event of an emergency,” said Division Chief of Life Safety Doug Prunk. “CPR training offers this and it’s easy.”
     The Blended CPR/AED program at the Fire District allows community residents the chance to get CPR and AED trained all at once. Through the Blended CPR/AED program, offered through the American Safety and Health Institute, residents can save time and money, and more importantly lives.
    The blended program is ideal for anyone who wants to know CPR and how to use an AED, and offers the flexibility of online learning. The digitized course book can be accessed online from any computer, at any time. Once the two-to-three hours of course work are done at home, an instructor-led, in-class skills check will be done.
    The first in-class skills check will be on March 28, but the registration deadline is Feb. 28. For details or to sign up for a program, visit www.fffd.us or call 303-833-274
