Community CPR Classes
Allen Fire Department has a big goal: teach every capable Allen citizen to perform CPR. Through free monthly classes, group training and special events, we hope to empower each participant to act quickly and confidently in an emergency.
Allen Fire Department offers a free Family and Friends CPR class on the third Saturday of each month, along with other dates as available. This hands-on training from the American Heart Association teaches how to perform CPR on adults, children and infants - both with and without the use of rescue breaths. Participants will also learn to use various AED (automated external defibrillator) devices, commonly found in public buildings such as offices, schools, recreation facilities and shopping centers. The goal of this class is to empower participants to save the life of a friend, family member or stranger. Participants do not receive a formal CPR certification.
