An annual goal has become a monthly necessity when it comes to the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department’s Community CPR classes. The department has partnered with the American Safety and Health Institute to educate residents about the proper techniques of performing CPR and using an automated external defibrillator for the last few years with initial hopes of hosting a four-hour class four times a year. The department now hosts three to four classes monthly and Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht is proud they have been able to meet the community’s demand.
By taking the $25 course, students receive training materials and a two-year certification in infant, child, and adult CPR. The next course hosted by the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department is May 19.
