Health 57C HLTH 57C, (Health 57C) Adult Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation, is not currently offered at De Anza College because most students need more than certification in only adult CPR.

This page is used for messages (see below) to students enrolled in the class during quarters the class is in session.
Part way into the quarter I receive many emails from students wanting to add the class, or who are already on the waitlist.
Many are concerned that the last "official" day to add a class is before our class starts, but this deadline does not apply to us. Since the class starts mid-way through the quarter, some who were enrolled decide to drop before the first day of the class, leaving room for more students. I can't add anyone until after the class has met for the first time, so attend the first session and you might be added.
When you call 911 from a land line telephone, such as in your house, you get dispatch for the city the phone (your house) is located in. When you call 911 from a cell phone you get the Highway Patrol at a central location. Sometimes, especially if you are not calling about something on the freeway/highway, it would be faster to get dispatch for the specific city the problem is happening in. This requires knowing the direct dial seven digit phone number for each dispatch.
Direct dial emergency phone numbers for most cities in Santa Clara County, California, can be found at the Santa Clara County ARES/RACES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services/Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) website.
San Mateo County cities (and the San Francisco airport) direct dial phone numbers can be found at:
When you are planning a camping trip, try to get the direct dial number for the park/Sheriff or agency in charge before you go.
