GREENVILLE – Summertime and the living is easy – and so is learning Citizens CPR to help keep someone alive! This Summer, when planning a family bar-b-que, scheduling a meeting or party, start the event with a short lesson that could save a life. Learn CitizensCPR, the hands-on only CPR, in just 30 minutes and then kick off the party.
What a great way to get together a regular group of friends, your organization, your staff, a Sunday school class, family or your clients. Most people who survive a cardiac emergency were helped by a bystander. That could be you!
There is no written testing for CitizensCPR. It’s an introductory class, without learning of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or AED usage. A trained instructor is provided and practice will be given on a special compression tool to insure that each participant is comfortable and skilled in hands-on CPR before the party is complete. .
All you need is an open room, a few guests and some food or drink for after the class. Participants are floor taught with accommodations made for those with knee issues.
Another class that can be taught in 30 minutes is Disaster Preparedness planning with a Make-It-Take-It Kit.
This is a service of the Darke County Red Cross and a fundraiser. Donations for the party help to support the mission of the Red Cross. This party class does not qualify for CPR certification needed for work or school.
