CPR Classes

BPCIA is working with the Bedford Park Fire Department to offer a CPR and AED classes.  On completion of this class students received a CPR certification card, which is good for two years.  They learned how to use a defibrillator (AED) and the importance of having them onsite. 
We feel it is extremely important to have this knowledge both personally and within your business. This is an annual event, so look for the class again next May.
