The Northern New York Chapter of the American Red Cross is hosting a First Aid-Responding to Emergencies class for high school coaches as they prepare for the fall season. The class will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, July 30-31 and Aug. 1, at the Red Cross Potsdam Branch, 73 Market St, Potsdam.
The program helps coaches recognize and respond appropriately to first aid emergencies and meets New York State coaching requirements. The course teaches skills that enable participants to give immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill athlete or bystander until more advanced medical personnel arrive.
The cost of the class is $120.00. Space is limited and advanced registration is required. To register, call 1-800-733-2767, or visit www.redcross.org/take-a-class.
