COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Emergency Medical Services (EMS) will offer a free community CPR program at Hampshire Unit School on Thursday, November 17, at 6 p.m. The program is open to the public.

The program will be taught by certified CPR instructors from Maury Regional EMS and will be based on the American Heart Association’s guidelines. This interactive and educational session will provide hands-on training in the basics of CPR; however, this is not a certification course.

“We are pleased to offer our ongoing community CPR program to residents of the Hampshire area,” said Shane Ware, director of Maury Regional EMS. “Anyone who would like to learn how to correctly perform basic life-saving skills is encouraged to join us for this program.”

During the “411 on 911” segment, learn about emergency medical services, including when to call 911 and the actions that emergency personnel take to immediately initiate patient care. Participants will also find out how professionals in the emergency department communicate with EMS to prepare for a patient’s arrival and treatment.

Registration is not required. For more information, call 931.381.1111, extension 2608.
