FREE CPR Classes
Lexington County EMS is committed to providing public education about EMS and your health. You do not have to be in EMS to be a lifesaver. We offer regularly scheduled FREE CPR classes geared to the public. Although in EMS we continue to take advantage of technical advancements in prehospital medicine that improve the outcome of our patients, the greatest factors in saving lives following sudden collapse in adults due to a cardiac event are still early recognition and notification to 911, early CPR and early defibrillation. Learn how to perform these lifesaving steps by attending one of our free classes.
