AED Check-Up and Hands-Only CPR Training Success

There were two great hands-only CPR and AED events on October 10 at the Rancho Adobe Fire Station in Cotati and Petaluma’s D Street Fire Station. We found four AEDs that the owners were unaware had expired parts and brought them up to date. We also trained more than 70 people in hands-only CPR and AED use.  These results could very well save a life in our community.

Thanks to Rancho Adobe Fire District, Petaluma Fire Department, Save Lives Sonoma, the American Heart Association and our many volunteers for making this event a huge success!

If you are interested in learning CPR, obtaining an AED or need an AED inspection please contact Healthquest CPR at healthquest@phcd.org or 707-766-9226
