First Aid / CPR Training

On Saturday, Jan 26th, 2013 more than 70 folk gathered in the Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan Society's practice space at Crown Hill Center to complete their American Heart Association First Aid and CPR certifications. Everybody passed which means that Ballard, Crown Hill and points in between now have 70 plus more people trained in First Aid and CPR. The training was provided through a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods NMF Small and Simple Fund grant. We worked with the Seattle Office of Emergency Management to get the grant. Training was provided by Prevention MD, and included two short online courses plus 5 hours hands-on practice with a great group of instructors.

Thanks to everybody who participated and gave the time to make our communities safer and more prepared for the next big disaster.

  1. Nice to read about it that you organize a medical work shop. To provide information about First Aid CPR Training Take a view of our site Onsite CPR Training .

  2. Health experts strongly recommend CPR training CPR training for teenagers and adults, especially parents and other people who are responsible for watching over children. Classes are offered at many organizations and can be found in most communities for minimal cost or sometimes for free.

  3. Nice information! It is very useful for all ages. All employers covered by the Workplace Safety Insurance Act are required to have first aid equipment, facilities and trained workers, this means usually only about two trained people (employees) in every school, need to be trained.
