Picture this: You and your family are enjoying a poolside BBQ on a warm spring afternoon. You're relaxing, maybe reading a magazine, when all of a sudden you see a mother pulling her child from the pool yelling "Does anyone know CPR?" Would you know what to do?

Serious medical emergencies can happen to anyone at any time. In situations where seconds are precious, being able to calmly assess a situation and confidently administer life saving aid is critical. 11Alive's Help Desk wants to make sure that you are prepared to protect yourself and your family in the event of a medical crisis. The Help Desk went to work to find CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillation) certification training centers around the metro-Atlanta area. Some of these classes even include basic first aid training which could prove useful for parents, babysitters, and coaches.

11Alive's Help Desk wants you to be safe, rather than sorry. For a list of CPR-AED certification classes near you, check out our resource page!
