First Aid and CPR/AED Certification
The City of Naperville recognizes the importance of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), First Aid and Automated External Defibrillators (AED). The instruction of non-Fire Department personnel increases both awareness and readiness within the community, all of which plays a vital role in the chain of survival for heart attack victims.
The Naperville Fire Department’s CPR/AED and First Aid certification programs teach residents and healthcare providers how to effectively deliver First Aid and CPR and how to correctly use an AED in accordance with current American Heart Association guidelines.
All courses are taught by Naperville firefighters certified by the American Heart Association and are held at the Naperville Training Center located at Safety Town, 1320 Aurora Avenue.
Classes cost $45 for Naperville residents and $55 for non-residents.
