CPR Classes

The Florissant Valley Fire Protection District is pleased to announce that we will begin offering regularly scheduled American Heart Association Family & Friends CPR classes. In conjunction with the CPR training, we will offer an optional First Aid & Fire District Information/Procedures Class. This class will briefly discuss how to handle many major medical emergencies and traumatic events, and the Fire District’s policies and procedures in response to these incidents. These classes are available to anyone, but should class sizes become too large, Fire District residents will take priority.

Total cost for both classes will be $5, which is solely to cover the cost of the Family & Friends CPR Student Manual. Friends & Family CPR alone will last approximately 2 hours, with the optional First Aid/District Info class lasting an additional 30-45 minutes.

Our first class will be offered Saturday May 12, 2018 at 9:00AM at our Firehouse1/Administration Building, located at 661 St. Ferdinand in Old Town Florissant.

Please call 314-837-4894 during regular business hours Monday through Friday to register or by email to dkaatman@fvfpd.com or ploeschner@fvfpd.com.  We will need your name, phone #, and whether or not you are a resident.

We thank you for your continued support, and look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve you in the future.
