CPR/Stop the Bleed
The Westlake Fire-EMS Department is a certified American Red Cross training site and teaches classes to the public. The department uses the American Red Cross certification course.
The course is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult, child and infant CPR, and AED use. This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who desires to learn CPR for personal or professional purposes. The course is NOT intended for healthcare providers. The class instruction is offered to you for FREE! If you desire the certification card, a fee for the card will be required. Currently, the American Red Cross charges $22.00 for the certification card.

Stop the Bleed
We also offer Stop the Bleed training which is a national awareness campaign intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
If you would like to receive this training to prepare yourself to assist injured people following a traumatic event, please let us know and we can offer it to you with your CPR training. The Stop the Bleed training will require an additional hour of instruction.
All classes are currently suspended until further notice due to COVID-19.
Child Safety Car Seat Checks
Every state in the United States requires that an infant or small child be restrained. And with good reason — unintentional injury is the leading cause of death in children, and most such injuries are from automobile crashes.
Westlake Fire-EMS has certified car seat technicians on each shift. You may call to schedule an appointment or stop by and request assistance with a car seat during business hours.
