CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers

YWCA Pekin is a proud provider of American Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers


​The primary purpose of the American Red Cross CPR/AED for Professional Rescuers is to instruct those who have a duty to act (professional rescuers) in the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately to breathing and cardiac emergencies. This includes the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to care for a victim experiencing cardiac arrest.
