Nestled into northern Ohio farmland is one of the state’s finest park facilities, Lake Loramie State Park, where activities range from boating, swimming, hiking and biking to hanging around camp with friends and families. As camping season “officially” kicks off, there will be something new this Memorial Day weekend, an exciting partnership between Ohio State Parks and the American Red Cross, offered on site a life-saving class Citizen CPR, where in thirty minutes participants can learn this compression based course.
The courses teach you:
• Hands Only CPR
• Care for choking victims
• 911 Emergency Services
• How to stay safe during emergencies
“Emergencies can happen anywhere, so why not prepare for them everywhere as well” noted American Red Cross NMVO Executive Director, Lynne Gump, “The leaders for this class are campers as well, so they know just what kind of circumstances will effect an emergency response.”
The course is being offered twice on May 24th, once at 2:00 pm and again at 2:30. Class will be held in the park maintenance area, picnic table seating or bring your camp chair. Class is open to those ten and up; adults will need to accompany their children. Leaders for this course are: Mary Lane, Don Gilbert, Christian and Christina Chalmers, all Red Cross volunteers.
