 What Does The Peoria Ham Fest And CPR Have In Common?

The Family & Friends CPR is an orientation to CPR and IS NOT A CERTIFYING or CREDENTIALING COURSE.

It’s important that more people survive cardiac arrest.  The greater the number of people who know Hands – Only CPR, the better someone’s chances of surviving.  If you give a person CPR right away they are more likely to survive.  Most cardiac arrest happens at home with family members around.  You can help a loved one survive by doing CPR.

How much does this class cost: $5.00 plus a free admission to the Peoria Ham Fest.

The class is limited to 10 people Only and you need to sign up first.

How to sign up?  Email jim Polson at

Oh, if you want to have the answer to our original question, you need to come to the Family & Friends CPR class.
