Celebrating Heart Month
As first aid specialists, we know that quick thinking
and fast action can save a person’s life. So we celebrate “Heart
Month” by delivering
a free CPR workshop for the public. The course covers prevention, recognition
and how to respond to life threatening conditions until the ambulance arrives.
You will learn how to:
- do a primary survey
- clear a complete and partially obstructed airway (choking) for conscious
and unconscious patients
- perform artificial respiration and CPR for adults, children and
You will also learn how to use an Automated External Defibrillation (A.E.D.) and how to recognize
the signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke.
At our’ Heart Month’ CPR workshop in February 2006, 130 people
learned life saving skills! The participants ranged in age from 10 year
old children to great grandparents. Our instructors donated their time
to this event and the participants donated $350 to the Red Cross to help
their disaster relief efforts.
In February 2007 once again over 100 people learned lifesaving skills and
donated over $300 to the Canadian Red Cross.
So when is the next ‘Heart Month’ workshop? In February again!
Stay tuned for details.
