Oakland Township Fire Department Community CPR and First Aid Training

Our goal as American Heart Association (AHA) instructors and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) members of the Oakland Township Fire Department is to help you become a confident and effective family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker and citizen, to help when needed wherever you may be. The Oakland Township Fire Department EMT’s are the First Responders, but you are truly the one who responds first to situations when they happen right where you are in Oakland Township.

      The Oakland Township Fire Department offers AHA Heartsaver CPR and First Aid classes.  Upon completion of CPR class students will know Adult, Child and Infant CPR, AED and choking/foreign body airway obstruction skills.  First Aid class covers the care of common illness and injury.
