Greeting to you all, my fellow BET’s!
Well, it’s that time of year again…or, at least it was back in June when I missed it. Time to raise awareness of and renew your CPR/AED certification! Funny how I don’t have this observance day memorized, yet I can tell you at the drop of a hat when National Pizza Day is…February 9th, if you are wondering.
Now because I am an employee of a school system, I have to be certified by the American Red Cross in CPR/AED to continue my employment and to be licensed as an educator by the state. (Just renewed mine this month!) But even if you aren’t required to do so, it is a great idea. According to the American Red Cross, approximately 92,000 are saved by CPR each year! Why not be prepared if you are ever in a situation where you might be needed to perform this on a person in peril?
Training is offered by the American Red Cross and you can find classes in your area by visiting their website, http://www.redcross.org/. The training can cost anywhere from nothing to around a hundred dollars. Training is also offered by private individuals, so you might ask around the area where you live. You might find a group of people of like mind that are willing to set up a training just for your small group, which might be more cost effective.
So, don’t be a dummy! Get trained and spread the word. Someone’s life may depend on it!
