Faced with an emergency, would you have the capability to save someone's life? Right now is a great chance to get the training you need, with special classes offered by

The first series of classes are free first aid, CPR, and AED classes that will be offered on five Saturdays in 2017, with the first class to be held Saturday, April 1, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Joslyn Community Center. The course will also be offered on June 3, August 5, October 14, and December 2.

Participants are asked to arrive 20 minutes before the class begins. All participants will receive a parking pass to ensure a parking space for the class. The class is free to residents of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo Beach.

You must pre-enroll to be assured a seat in class. Email Jeanne Hendricks at 1certtraining@gmail.com with your full name, phone, email and home address and preferred date to reserve your spot. Participants will receive a 2-year first aid certificate.

For a deeper dive into emergency and life-saving techniques, the Manhattan Beach CERTA and the Manhattan Beach Fire Department are offering a four-day emergency certification class. The classes will be held on May 18 and 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and then on May 20 and May 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The course consists of all four days of training, covering light fire-fighting skills, light search and rescue, first aid and transport, and triage. It will be held at the Public Works Training Room at 3621 Bell Ave. in Manhattan Beach.
