American Heart Association
provides CPR certification which takes just a few short hours, but can help you add years to someone’s life. The CPR training classes give you the information and the skills you need to help adults, children and infants during breathing and cardiac emergencies.
Family and Friends CPR is for anyone who wants to learn basic CPR skills, choking relief and
AED awareness, and who does not need a course completion card to meet a job requirement.
It is designed to be shared among close family and friends.
CPR Training will be conducted by Mary Lou Coriasco on Saturday October 8, 2016. Please register with Mary Lou by no later than Wednesday, October 5th.
All Scouts are encouraged to participate. Cost is $10.00. Participants must register to attend.
