Learning CPR can save lives. People die every day from cardiac arrest, due to drowning, smoke inhalation, and many other causes because family members, friends, and bystanders don’t know how to respond effectively. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is easy to learn, and necessary for those who serve in many if not all law enforcement jobs across the country. To that effect classes will be made available for members of the reserve division.
While taking the CPR/AED/First Aid class is not mandatory, it is highly suggested. In times of crisis people tend to turn to those in uniform for help, and we as a division should be able to render that help.
I have set up a schedule that offers four opportunities to take CPR/AED/First Aid. The CPR classes will take approximately 4 hours to complete, and will be held at the Sheriff’s Department. Class sizes are limited, so it is a first come first serve basis for sign-ups. The listed times are tentative and may be subject to change due to resource availability. The sign-up sheets will be available during the division meetings also, and those unable to make the meetings may also send me an email about interest or sign up here.
(The training classes have closed for 2015. Thank you to all who signed up!)
