So, Isn’t It Time You Learned CPR? (ATTENTION TWIN CITIES!)

Yeah, it’s on the list… etc. I used to be an instructor (about 7 billion years ago) and taught a lot of people how it worked. True story: I was UA (Unauthorized Absence, the Navy equivalent of AWOL) for not teaching a scheduled CPR class when I was stationed in Spain. Somebody forgot to tell the training division that I was kind of busy off the coast of some foreign land. I’d never before, or since, used this defense, but I loved it: “I was out of the country, I can’t tell you where, and you don’t have the need to know. Now tear up the charges.” I hope I never need it again.

Why do I mention this? Because a charity I believe in is doing some down-and-dirty CPR training in January in the Twin Cities. The poster is right here for you to see. Please consider this as an event to attend with your adult friends. It raises funds for a great cause and they guy teaching it is a super individual. I’d even bet that if you email him he’d work with you to do it in another venue to raise funds some other time – hint, hint, corporate safety people…

This is the best deal going for really learning CPR, and it benefits a great charity.

The reason for this event is pretty simple: Haiti has no viable paramedic structure. If you have a heart attack outside of a hospital (and possibly in some of the hospitals) you’re toast without an AED to restart your heart. AEDs are very simple to use and they save lives. Please consider either donating to the cause or attending the training.
