Learning basic first aid, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), or how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) can quite possibly mean the difference between life and death for someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest or other medical emergency. People in the Athens area can learn these skills by taking an American Red Cross course. 

The Red Cross offers courses where people can learn how to perform CPR, how to use an AED, what to do if someone is choking, and how to prevent and respond to other emergencies until advanced medical help arrives. Course participants also learn how to control bleeding as well as how to care for seizures and other sudden illnesses. The courses consist of classroom instruction, demonstrations, and hands-on skills practice using manikins.

  1. Important, life-saving training everyone should have, especially here in Athens with the drownings we’ve had the last couple years. You never know when you’ll need to know CPR or first aid to save someone’s life. Hope to see a lot of people at the ARC Blood Center tomorrow night!
