August First Aid Training

User News Image
Be prepared for accidents and have the ability to come to the rescue

With festivals, fairs, ball games, picnics, and the dreaded back-to-school season…there is a lot going on in August. When there’s a lot going on, there is a lot of room for accidents. Be prepared for those times and have the ability to come to the rescue by becoming First Aid/CPR/AED certified through the Red Cross! In one day, you can develop the skills and knowledge necessary to react in the event that one of your fun summer activities goes wrong.

The Red Cross Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED courses meet OSHA workplace requirements by teaching you how to respond to first aid, breathing, and cardiac emergencies. You will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with a Red Cross instructor who will guide you through hands-on practice of lifesaving skills. Successful students will receive a certificate valid for two years.
