The CPR training course was designed to help the residents learn an important skill needed in an emergency. It will also help the First Aid Squad with keeping their equipment and personnel up to date. This is a great program for all residents and hopefully everyone will come out and support a great organization as well as learn a valuable tool in life saving.
