CPR Program Description

The Tri-State Fire District offers the following American Heart Association (AHA) training programs:

Heartsaver® Course

Heartsaver courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (for example, OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can
also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting. For many Heartsaver courses, students receive a course completion card that is valid for 2 years.

Family & Friends® CPR

The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, adult CPR with breaths, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and mild and severe airway block for adults, children, and infants. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.  Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community groups, new parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.

Basic Life Support (BLS) for the Healthcare Professional

Basic Life Support training reinforces healthcare professionals’ understanding of the importance of early CPR and defibrillation, basic steps of performing CPR, relieving choking, and using an AED; and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival. The BLS Course is designed for healthcare providers caring for patients both in and out of a hospital/in-facility setting.

Delivery formats for the AHA training programs:

Instructor-led training

This option is led by an AHA Instructor in a classroom setting. Instructors deliver courses designed to include both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor component of thorough skills practice and testing.

Blending learning

A combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course online in a self-directed manner, and a hands-on session with an Instructor.  Click here to inquire about a class or for more information about the CPR Training Program.

Severe Weather Preparedness

The National Weather Service (NWS) is the official agency for issuing severe weather watches, warnings and advisories to alert the public when dangerous weather conditions are expected.

Thunderstorms can produce damaging winds, deadly lightning, large hail, flash flooding and tornadoes. Illinois is averaging about 64 tornadoes each year. Tornadoes that strike at night are even more dangerous, like the 2021 Father’s Day EF-3 tornado that struck DuPage County.

The National Weather Service and state and local emergency management officials strongly encourage people to have a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) All Hazards Weather Radio with battery backup.  These radios can be programmed to receive alerts for specified counties to keep you and your family apprised of impending weather and post-event information for all types of hazards including natural (earthquakes), environmental (chemical spills) and public safety hazards (AMBER alerts).  When an alert is issued for the programmed area, the device will sound a warning alarm tone followed by the essential information. The information provided in these alerts will guide you through the appropriate protective measures.

Watches mean that severe weather or flooding might develop near your area over the next several hours. Pay attention to the weather and be ready to act if storms approach. Warning means take action immediately. The storm either has a history of producing damage or flooding or is expected to do so in your area shortly.

In addition to NOAA weather radios, Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) can provide lifesaving information about impending storms and emergencies. These alerts can be sent to your mobile device without the need to download an app or subscribe to a service.  Not only are these tools critical to surviving overnight storms, but they can be extremely beneficial for those who travel.
