Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter Announces Free CPR Training in the Town of Islip

January 31st, 2019 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter joined Suffolk County officials today to announce that the Suffolk County Department of Health Services will be offering free cardiopulmonary-resuscitation training classes for residents during the month of February in the Town of Islip. The trainings will focus on chest-compression-only CPR, which, according to the American Heart Association, has the same statistical odds of saving a person's life as traditional CPR. Classes are open to teenagers and adults.

“February is Heart Health Month, and serves as an important reminder to make intelligent lifestyle choices, including exercise and eating right,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “Enrolling in a life-saving training course however, could be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, and we’re proud to be a part of this invaluable program.”
