CPR – The Power to Save Lives

Did you know that the use of CPR dates all the way back to 1740? Yet, even today, most Americans don’t know how to perform it.

The biggest benefit of learning CPR is the ability to save lives if and when the situation arises. According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time. Given properly and immediately to sudden cardiac arrest victims, CPR can save lives.

To schedule a CPR Certification Class for your organization, the following individuals are available as Instructors:

Firefighter Kevin Bee – Cell: (239) 253-7869
Engineer Rick Green – Cell: (239) 565-3437

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

CERT is an acronym for Community Emergency Response Team. It is a national program administered by FEMA. CERTs are formed by members of a neighborhood or workplace who want to be better prepared for the hazards that can threaten their communities.

CERT educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, disaster psychology and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
