WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Service is offering a free hands-only CPR training session starting in January.

The classes are set to run at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Jan. 3, at the training classroom of the Westport Police/EMS Headquarters building at 50 Jesup Road in Westport.

Students in the class will learn "how to perform hands-only CPR (no mouth-to-mouth) for an adult who does not show signs of life, how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and how to assist an adult who is choking and cannot breathe," representatives said. Hands-only CPR takes 30 minutes to learn. The program is not a certification-level class.

Pre-registration is required by sending an e-mail to cpr@westportems.org, or calling the CPR Hotline at 203-341-6030. Residents are asked to indicate the date and time you want to attend.
