Learning first aid and CPR
A colleague of mine is taking a course in CPR. She was telling me that her main reason for doing so is because her elderly mother is going to be moving in with her and she wants to have a better idea of what to do in case of an emergency like passing out, not breathing, choking, etc.
It dawned on me that each of us as parents, future parents, family members and neighbors all would benefit from knowing something about emergency care. I took a first aid safety course a long time ago, I’m talking decades, and I’m sure I could use a little brushing up on techniques. How up-to-date are you? The American Red Cross offers courses in CPR and other health and safety services. You should be able to find a course near you at their web site. This might make a nice holiday gift for someone, too.
