Free CPR Training

and it's for everyone!

Thursday, June 7th
9am - 12noon

The Monrovia Fire Department would like to remind residents of the upcoming event on Thursday, June 7 from 9:00 a.m. to noon called “Sidewalk CPR Day.” That week happens to be National CPR week and in cooperation with the American Heart Association, Cities throughout the State of California will be participating in an event that teaches hands-only CPR to local residents. The Monrovia Fire Department will have a booth set-up in front of the Library in Downtown and will be using special mannequins to teach residents the life-saving technique. No special skills are required and each training session lasts about 10 minutes, providing the vital skills that could save a life.

Come on out with the entire office for a free training!

Here comes the Goldline!
