CPR/AED & First Aid Courses
In addition to EMT classes, WVAA offers free CPR training for town residents each month and only a small fee to non-residents. We offer both Heart Saver CPR (this class is geared for those that have little to no medical knowledge or experience) and BLS Provider CPR (this class is geared toward medical professionals). We are also now offering First Aid courses for the public to become certified in caring for people experiencing medical emergencies. These classes are posted in the Wolcott Community News and on this site. If you would like to sign up for a class, please call (203)-879-4122 Ext. 113 or submit the form below.
