Infant CPR class slated for Feb. 27

YAKIMA – Parents of infants can gain the confidence to handle stressful and potentially dangerous situations by learning how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, at a class at the Memorial Education Center, 2506 W. Nob Hill Ave., Yakima, on Thursday, Feb. 27, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

No registration is needed for the class, which is being offered by Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. The cost is $5 per person.

This is not a certification class, but knowing how to respond in the first few minutes of an emergency - before professional help arrives - can mean the difference between life and death.

Parents or caregivers of an infant should learn infant CPR, say hospital officials in Yakima.
