Classes will be offered throughout the day beginning at 8 a.m., with the last class starting at noon. Certification courses will take place at 8 a.m. and noon for a $50 fee.
New to the event this year, free Stop the Bleed classes will also be offered. This class provides basic, live-saving training in bleeding control principles which allow people to provide immediate, frontline aid until first responders are able to take over care of an injured person.
This year’s CPR Saturday is being held in honor of Kristi Deckard, the longtime Billings Clinic training center coordinator who chaired CPR Saturday from its creation in 2002 until her passing in 2019.
CPR Saturday is organized by a coalition of local health care and emergency response organizations, including 373 Consulting, American Medical Response, St. Vincent Healthcare, the Billings Fire Department and Billings Clinic.
