The Red Cross Offers First Aid and CPR/AED Courses in Athens

The American Red Cross prides itself on being an organization that equips people with extraordinary lifesaving skills, such as basic first aid, how to perform CPR, how to use an automated external defibrillator, and how to respond to other emergencies until medical help arrives. These skills can quite possibly mean the difference between life and death for someone suffering a serious medical emergency. 

In honor of March, which is National Red Cross Month, The Red Cross is offering courses where people can learn these vital skills. The courses consist of classroom instruction, demonstrations, and hands-on skills practice using lifelike mannequins.
