Free CPR class for Marathon County citizens

By Bonnie Shelton

STEVENS POINT (WAOW)--Firefighters say basic CPR knowledge can save lives. Thanks to a class led by the Rib Mountain Fire Department, you can get those skills for free.

The Friends and Family CPR Class, offered through the American Heart Association, is offered once every month. The next session begins Thursday night at six o'clock.

Trained professionals lead the course. This isn't a program that gets you certification, it just teaches you the basic skills needed to perform the potentially life-saving technique.

The class is free for any Marathon County citizen and is held for about two hours at the Rib Mountain Fire Department. If you are interested in taking the class, please call them at 715-355-6763.
