Ongoing

We are now prepared to actively set up classes. If you are not prepared to have a class conducted, but you want to set one up for the beginning of 2022, put that in your request.

We have mentioned this, however, we are now able to offer BLS - CPR/AED class to those in our area. A few things that need to be considered prior to requesting the class.

1. We need to maintain a 1:6 Instructor to Student Ratio. If you are a school that needs to accomplish this task, and you have 15 people, does that mean that we cannot make it happen? Not at all. You will need to understand that the class will have to actually be two (2) classes in order to accomplish the task at hand.

2. When you get ready to request the class, you will have to provide the following:

1. A room inside from the elements. (Summer is humid, so we need AC, because it is strenuous, fall and winter, people taking the class will need to be inside out of the elements). It is not that we are training people to take care of someone only when the weather is perfect. What it is, is that I am not willing to risk the health and safety of my people (who are expected to perform these duties, much less a structure fire in inclement weather), in a training/practice event, much less someone who is a lay-person, who may be taking the class in order to fulfill a requirement for their job, or just because they want to better themselves.

2. I teach BLS - CPR/AED to everyone. There are a couple of reasons for this. 1) More and more businesses have Automatic External Defibrillators(AED), so whoever I teach, should be trained to that level. 2). This level of training is half the cost of the card. When you call to schedule the class, the cost of the class will be discussed between the liason, and myself. We (Pine Village Fire Department), as well as myself (CPT Herpel), are never making a profit from this. There is a set cost for the card that AHA charges. Anything above that goes towards replacement costs of the manikins.

3. ALL personnel who are going to take the class, need to be listed on the class request form. If I receive a request form, and then we make contact, and the number that we set up for, and then by the time that we are getting ready for the class, the number increases, the liason should contact CPT Herpel so that arrangements can be made to ensure that all personnel are cared for

If Interested

1. Contact CPT Herpel - Using this Contact/Request Form https://pdf.ac/VlsIK

The link will take you to a form. Once you fill it out and hit "done", it comes straight to me

2. Provide the information requested

3. CPT Herpel will get with you within 24-48 hours to determine the date

We are looking forward to hearing from you and providing the course to all of those interested.

Questions

1. Do I have to be a Teacher/Business Owner?

Answer: No you do not. It is preferable that you have at least 5-6 people, and you are still responsible for finding that location as laid out in Point 1.

2. I do not live in Pine Village Fire Department's fire district. Am I still able to request the class?

Answer: It does not preclude you from it. The same thing applies, the preferred number, as well as the location.

3. Do I have to provide a projector/screen/TV?

Answer: No, I will provide that. All you have to do is have a location to be able to focus on accomplishing the task

4. How long is the class?

Answer: The class is a minimum of 4 hours. Some people may be there a little longer, if they have to have some remediation, or have more questions, we will not hold up the entire class for one person.

5. How far in advance do I need to request this class?

Answer: I would PREFER that the class request is completed and we make contact 3 - 4 weeks out. This allows me to ensure that there are no scheduling conflicts.
