Join CC@H and Bethesda Metro Area Village to learn the basics of CPR, along with helpful fire prevention home safety tips from members of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.

Hands-Only CPR: In a brief period of time, anyone can learn the steps of Hands-Only CPR. Join us on April 25th when Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service Lt. Irvin Smith demonstrates and teaches the simple, yet important lifesaving skills that anyone can do. There is no more valuable time spent. We can't wait to see you there!

Fire and Carbon Monoxide Safety in Your Home: Does your home safety equipment need a checkup? You probably get a regular checkup for your health from a healthcare provider. Your home deserves the same care and attention. You might be able to check (and perhaps correct) some things in your home, but what do you really know about your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms? Please consider having a free Home Safety Check by a representative from the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service (MCFRS). The typical Home Safety Check takes about an hour. A trained, experienced firefighter or fire safety educator will come to your home on an appointment basis and will check your existing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. If your alarms are missing or otherwise in need of replacement, we might be able to install new alarms at no cost. The typical Home Safety Check takes about an hour to complete. Please note, since we are firefighters and not electricians we are limited in what we can do if your home has hardwired alarms. Also, we cannot work on ceilings that are more than 9 feet high. But we can still come out anyway and assess and recommend corrective actions.

This event will take place at the Chevy Chase Village Hall, 5906 Connecticut Ave. Parking is available on neighboring streets. The event is free, but please register by contacting the office at info@chevychaseathome.org or 301-657-3115, or by clicking 'Register Now' at right.
