The Village of Wilmette recognizes the importance of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillators (AED). Bringing this training to our community members increases both awareness and readiness in the Village; all of which plays a vital role in the chain of survival for heart attack victims.
The Village of Wilmette CPR/AED certification program teaches residents how to effectively deliver CPR and how to correctly use an AED in accordance with current American Heart Association guidelines using the American Heart Association Heartsaver instructional course.
All courses are taught by Wilmette firefighters certified by the American Heart Association and are held at Fire Station #26 located at 1304 Lake Avenue, Wilmette Illinois.
The cost per person for the course is $25.00, and is payable by cash or check at the beginning of the class. Credit card payments must be made at the Village Hall during regular business hours prior to the start of the class. A paid receipt will need to be presented to the instructor at the beginning of the class.
Classes are for Village of Wilmette residents or individuals employed within the Village of Wilmette. For local businesses that would like to host a CPR class for your employees, please contact the fire department at 847.251.1101.
To register for one of the fire department-hosted classes, contact the fire department between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm at least five (5) business days prior to the class date.
