City of Corona Offering Free CPR Training

CORONA – The Corona Fire Department is offering you the opportunity to learn CPR free of charge. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States and over 90 percent of those people die. Of these instances, the survival rate is 2-3 times higher for those who have someone nearby to perform CPR within the first few minutes.

Although the response time for the Corona Fire Department is less than 5 minutes in most cases, early intervention of a bystander who is trained to perform CPR can increase a patient’s survivability. Learning CPR may be the difference between life and death for a friend or family member. A 2-hour course can help you learn how. This training is available to any residents, school, group, or business.

The training conducted by the City of Corona Fire Department firefighters and paramedics and consists of video instructions, lecture, and hands-on practice. Attendees will learn to immediately recognize the signs of cardiac arrest, learn the importance of early activation of 911, learn  Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on Chest compressions, and Early Familiarization with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and the need for rapid Defibrillation.


The classes are held at the Corona Fire Department Training Center located at 735 Public Safety Way (formerly 735 Corporation Yard Way) 2nd floor, suite 201 in the City of Corona,  For groups of 40 or more, please contact the Corona Fire Department at (951)736-2220 or via email at CoronaFireCPR@discovercorona.com to schedule a special training session.
