Boulder City Fire Department is offering a free hands-only CPR class at 11 a.m. Nov. 18 in the gazebo at Bicentennial Park, 999 Colorado St.

The class will teach participants what to do if they see someone collapse suddenly. If performed correctly, hands-only CPR can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.

Information about how to recognize a stroke and what to do will be available, as well.

Pamphlets will be provided.

A donation from San Diego Gas &Electric’s Desert Star Energy Center is underwriting costs for the session. San Diego Gas &Electric is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, which has solar fields in the Eldorado Valley.

Along with the training, the Boulder City Firefighter’s Association is holding a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov 18 in the park. All donors will receive a voucher for a free ride about the High Roller observation wheel.
