BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights Volunteer Rescue Squad (BHVRS) hosted two 1-hour community cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes on April 23 at the Squad building on Snyder Avenue. The classes were well attended and were open to those who live or work in Berkeley Heights. The course was taught by an American Red Cross instructor and BHVRS Vehicle Lt Bill Schulz. Participants learned the basics of hands-only CPR, use of the AED defibrillator, and how to assist choking victims.
