St. John Ambulance will be holding a Community CPR day in Fort St. John on Nov. 20.
St. John Ambulance is holding the courses as part of ‘CPR Month’ and wants to create awareness on the importance and value of having proper CPR training. Classes offered will be free of charge to all those who attend. People attending will also receive a certificate and St. John Ambulance CPR book.
St. John Ambulance’s goal is to eventually have one person from every household in the city trained in CPR. They say that in the event of a disaster individuals should be able to sustain themselves for 72 hours. They state that the best way to be able to achieve this is to be trained in CPR and have a first aid kit. St. John Ambulance will also be providing discounted first aid kits on CPR day.
Those interested in registering can call 250-785-SAFE (7233) or drop by the St. John Ambulance Training Centre at 10066 Tundra Road Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
