The Fanwood Rescue Squad is once again offering free courses in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) during National EMS Week in May.  The courses, taught by squad members who are certified instructors, will be offered in the squad's building at 123 Watson Road, Fanwood, and are open only to Fanwood and Scotch Plains residents.  The CPR courses will be taught under the American Heart Association Heartsaver curriculum. The dates are:

  • Saturday, May 17 at 8:30 AM
  • Monday, May 19 at 7:00 PM
  • Wednesday, May 21 at 7:00 PM

Those who complete the course will earn a two-year certification.

Anyone interested in one of these free classes must register online at It’s first come, first served until the classes are full.

In past years, our local business community generously sponsored our CPR classes and we are asking for their help again this year. Any Fanwood or Scotch Plains business that would like to be a sponsor with a $100 donation will be recognized in literature distributed at the classes, a "thank you" ad published in the local paper and on the Rescue Squad’s website noted above. If you’d like to be a sponsor, please visit the squad’s donation page, Thanks in advance!
