Community Service and Outreach Programs

Memorial Healthcare System takes great pride in providing community service and outreach programs. We have many programs and services designed to benefit local residents, including health fairs and children's safety programs.

CAB's of CPR

The CABs of CPR is an educational program that offers parents, teachers and caretakers who are interested in participating in learning the techniques of CPR. This is not a certification class. Participants will be given the chance to practice the learned techniques. The objective of the program is to educate the community on the importance of learning CPR and becoming CPR certified.

The CABs of CPR program provides the very basic and simple techniques of CPR. Free informative materials will be given to all participants. This program is strictly optional and all information provided on site is FREE of charge.
