It is being announced that there are some updates and some changes to our skills.
The first exciting change is that the CPR and First Aid Trainings will be certified for TWO years!!!! We understand that some of you are nervous about remembering the life saving skills. There will be a refresher available on line to "refresh" your skills so that you will be comfortable and confident when that emergency occurs.
Another change is the Hands Only CPR - This is to potentially increase the survival rate of cardiac arrest victims. American Red Cross feels that more people would be willing to perform the skill (helping the victim) if they didn't have to breath into the victim. Lay Responders that are certified in CPR are encouraged to perform FULL CPR. These certified individuals would be prepared with their breathing barrier and disposable gloves to help minimize the risk of disease transmission.
These updates will be made available in 2011. First Care Emergency of course is prepared to meet your emergency needs!
