Saturday, March 19th the American Red Cross Genesee-Lapeer Chapter will offer free CPR and first aid training.

Red Cross chapters across America are holding classes to teach these lifesaving skills as part of Gabrielle Giffords Honorary Save-A-Life Saturday.  Classes at the Flint chapter will run from 8 am to 4 pm and last 45 minutes to an hour, and will include instruction in hands-0nly CPR, controlling external bleeding and managing shock. 

“The tragedy in Tuscon is a reminder of how important it is for everyone to know first aid and CPR,” said Kenneth E.Vavra, Executive Director.  “As this tragic event unfolded, several bystanders knew these vital skills, which helped save the lives of many victims, including Congresswoman Giffords.  This inspired us to offer this training right here in our community.”

Also on March 19th, the Red Cross is premiering a special set of videos to teach CPR and first aid skills.  If you can’t attend the training in person, you can learn by watching at:  www.redcross.org/savealife
