This will allow me to not only be more knowledgable in life-saving techniques, but to help teach others how they can do the same. While the instructor training is a series of classes lasting about thirty hours over three weeks, the First Aid and CPR classes only take four to six hours.
In fact, I might even organize a Red Cross First Aid/CPR training class or two at various locations around the state this summer, and challenge my readers and fellow bloggers to participate so they can become certified to render First Aid and CPR!
This way, when bad things happen, you'll be able, knowledgable, and prepared to respond in a pro-active role.
Homeland Security isn't just about stopping bad guys - it's about responding to any kind of disasters which threaten the well-being of our fellow citizens ... and it involves YOU, so don't sit on the sidelines - GET INVOLVED!
