No matter how large or small a fire is, when firefighters work to control and extinguish a fire, safety and teamwork is essential. This need for safety and teamwork extends beyond fires though, considering EMS calls are more frequent than fires. This means that whether someone is looking to be a career firefighter in Racine or serve their local community as a volunteer in Waukesha, learning CPR will be required. Milwaukee firefighter CPR training is no different.

As a firefighter in Wisconsin, you will have an active role in saving lives. Most often, paramedics are the primary care providers when CPR is needed, but the other firefighters on scene help with CPR. CPR and basic airway management will be delegated to firefighters as the paramedics prepare for more advanced care. To help in these situations, all Milwaukee firefighters are required to have Milwaukee Fire Department CPR training.
