The Brentwood Fire & Rescue Department will host free CPR classes in February to mark American Heart Month at the John P. Holt Brentwood Library, 8109 Concord Road, Brentwood.

The four two-hour classes are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 4, 11, 18 and 25, according to the department.

The classes are geared toward students age 16 and older and will include training on infant, child and adult CPR techniques.

CPR is a life-saving technique in many emergency situations, including near drownings and cardiac arrest when someone's heart has stopped beating, the announcement said. Through Nov. 30 of last year, the department responded to 23 calls when CPR was in progress, according to the announcement.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the class size will be limited to 10 people per session and participants are encouraged to wear masks, but they are not mandatory.
