Wheatfield-based Tri-Community Ambulance Service, a volunteer company, is offering free training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of portable heart defibrillators. Second Assistant Chief Philip R. Richardson said the goal is to train at least 100 civilians in the life-saving techniques.
The first session will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the Wheatfield Community Center, 2790 Church Road, behind Town Hall.
Other training opportunities will be offered March 26, April 13 and 28, and May 4. Registration is available online at the ambulance company's website.
Certified instructors will teach each four-hour course, offered in conjunction with Action CPR.
