This month’s featured topic for Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7:00 pm: Which First Aid and CPR Class To Take
There are many first aid and CPR classes taught by various organizations; American Red Cross and American Heart Association being the best known. However, there are many other organizations offering classes, each satisfying certain goals and requirements and/or targeting a specific population, from scuba divers to school bus drivers.
Erin Huey, Red Cross instructor/trainer, American Heart Association instructor, 28-year Gas Company employee, former Army officer, and instructor of first aid courses required for CERT Level 3, will help us appreciation the complexity of first aid and CPR training due to legalities, licensing, certifications, and ordinances. She’ll also discuss the course choices available to us, and how and why they differ by price, type, needs and interests. Come with your questions and confusion, and Erin will straighten you out.
Attached is our agenda for the Tuesday, March 21, Emergency Preparedness meeting at 7:00 pm at the Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council office, 11139 Woodley Ave., Granada Hills, 91344 (map). Everyone is invited to attend. Plenty of free parking.
Remember our Can of the Month project to collect food for donation to MEND (mendpoverty.org), a local and regional food bank (and so much more). If you are able, please bring one can (or box or package–no glass, please) of food (human or pet) to our monthly meeting.
