Heart Restart
Who will YOU save if you learn CPR?

The Burnsville Fire Department and the Burnsville Mobile Volunteer Network have teamed up with the Dakota County
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Council to reduce the number of deaths from sudden cardiac arrest in Burnsville.

Each year, the condition kills approximately 325,000 Americans - more than car crashes; firearms; house fires; AIDS; and breast, prostate and colorectal cancer combined. What’s more, this top killer can strike anyone, at any age, without warning.

The campaign “Burnsville Heart Restart: Who Will YOU Save,” has set the ambitious goal of training 6,000 people in CPR over the next three years. To reach that goal, the Burnsville Fire Department is offering free, one-hour CPR classes and materials to any group or organization wishing to learn the lifesaving skill. (Please note: The classes are in a new “Compression Only” format, and do not fulfill certification requirements.)

Heart Restart classes are good for people of all ages and abilities! Classes are free and held monthly.

The next class will be:
 Date:    Wednesday, Oct. 19
