ND Safety Council

Learn how to perform hands only CPR, use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), and administer first aid for the most common camping, fishing, watersports, wilderness, and hunting injuries. The class is only 15 minutes and, someday, it could mean the difference between life and death. No need to pre-register. 25 people per class, so show up early. Class times are 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Don’t want to take the class?
