CPR and First Aid Course Open to Public
Wednesday, February 4, 2009 • Posted February 3, 2009

It looks easy in the instruction book, but as Jeanne Hardy discovered as she tried to provide first aid to Marge Spiller, bandaging a broken arm requires a little experience and training to keep from turning the victim into a mummy.

They were students the last time the American Red Cross taught its CPR and first aid course in Blanco County. The course will be back again at 8:30am on Saturday, February 7th, in the Activity Building of the First United Methodist Church in Johnson City.

The class is open to anyone interested in learning to save a life. In addition to bandage-tying, you'll learn how to keep a heart pumping until professional help arrives and even the use of AEDs to re-start a stopped heart.

If anyone dear to you is susceptible to stroke, heart attack or just a fall, this is the class you need.

For more information, please call JoAnn at 830-868-7414.
