We’re beginning to receive and see announcements about preparedness classes.
This series includes a session in High Point (and two in other locations) about Hands-Only CPR and Stroke, from Recreation Specialist, Carol Baxter-Clubine, City of Seattle.
Hands-Only CPR & Stroke classes
Here are the dates for our February and March classes. Please register for
these classes, they do fill quickly. Information on who to call is listed
below each session.
Take this one hour class to learn about hands on CPR and how to recognize
signs of a stroke. You will come away with the ability to recognize serious
medical emergencies and how to communicate and collaborate with 9-1-1
dispatchers. This is not a certification class. This class is intended for
seniors, 50 and older.
These classes are brought to you through a collaboration of Seattle Parks
and Recreation’s Lifelong Recreation Programs, King County EMS, and the UW Public Health Students.

We are working on developing more classes for those who can only attend in the evening, and will be getting that information out once we have finalized the details.
Other emergency preparedness training sessions: If you are interested in the ongoing training sessions (such as Basic Aid, Disaster Skills, or Light Search and Rescue) offered by the Seattle Office of Emergency Management, you’ll find information about them here:
