Save the Date to Save a Life! March 19th

Get Free Adult CPR & First Aid Training on March 19 from the Red Cross

Join the American Red Cross as they host the Gabrielle Giffords Honorary Save-a-Life Saturday on March 19, 2011.

Just over a month ago, the events that unfolded in Arizona reminded the nation of the importance of being prepared in the event of an emergency. Many of the bystanders knew CPR and first aid and were able to save the lives of several victims, including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who received help from her intern Daniel Hernandez.

On March 19th, in more than 100 locations across the nation, the Red Cross will provide fast and easy classes to teach the basics of hands-only CPR, the treatment of shock and how to treat wounds. The classes will be shortened versions of Red Cross training courses, lasting approximately 45 minutes to one hour and offered multiple times during the day.

Best of all, the courses are being offered free of charge through the generosity of our sponsors, Safeway and Walgreens.

Check for locations and times of trainings here.  I am trained in CPR through my work and from the last training the CPR techniques had changed so get up to date with the latest and greatest, you never know when you might need it!
