• ALL PROGRAMS SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID

    The Madison Fire District is supporting an initiative to teach 10,000 residents of Lake County the life-saving Hands-Only™ CPR.  The goal of the initiative is to improve the survivability of cardiac arrest by having trained responders throughout the county.  Studies show that the early initiation of Hands-Only™ CPR can increase the chance of survival by nearly 50%.  We encourage you to do your part in improving the safety in Lake County. Madison Fire District offers several CPR classes to the public throughout the year. Please call station three at 440-428-6531 for more information or to sign up.

    Hands-Only™ CPR Can Save Lives.

    Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don’t be afraid. Your actions can only help.

    How to Give Hands-Only CPR.

    If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song “Staying’ Alive.” CPR can more than double a person’s chances of survival, and “Staying’ Alive” has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.
