The Wauconda Fire District strives to make quality education programs available to the public through the Public Education Division of our Fire Prevention Bureau. Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is one of these programs. We make this class available because it is likely that you, a member of the public, will be on the scene of an emergency when the need arises. When a person stops breathing, he or she has only 4-6 minutes before their brain begins to die from the lack of oxygen. A person’s best chance of survival is when a trained person begins CPR immediately to deliver that much needed oxygen. YOU can be that person. The Wauconda Fire District teaches CPR Classes to the public on a regular basis. These are offered to the residents of our Fire District for a fee of $55.00, non-residents are welcome to attend our classes for a fee of $65.00. Because classes are very popular and space is limited, all persons registering for a class will need be paid in full prior to the class to hold their spot. You have two options for payment, PayPal when registering or if you prefer to pay with a check, please send your registration fee to: Wauconda Fire District CPR Registration, 109 West Liberty Street Wauconda, IL 60084 A minimum of 3 persons is required to hold any class. The Wauconda Fire District CPR Instructors are now teaching with the American Heart Association. You will receive a certification card good for two years at the end of the class. Groups with a minimum of 10 persons and a maximum of 20 may schedule a private class for CPR, First Aid, or Healthcare Provider CPR, based on instructor availability. Private classes are limited to groups and or businesses within the Wauconda Fire District.
