Organization Urges Residents to Learn Skills that Can Save a Life
DUBOIS – Each year, more than 5 million people learn how to save a life by enrolling in American Red Cross preparedness courses. In February, the organization encourages area residents to join the ranks of these everyday heroes by taking a class now.
From the professional first-responder to the local pool’s lifeguard to the trusted community babysitter, the Red Cross equips individuals across the country with lifesaving skills to act quickly in dire circumstances. Red Cross courses aim to teach people how to prevent and respond in life-threatening emergencies, whether at the workplace or in the home.
The following classes will be offered in Dubois this month. The courses will be held at the Red Cross office, located at 109 N. Brady St. in Dubois.
- Wednesday, Feb. 13; 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED; $110
- Wednesday, Feb. 13; 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.; Adult CPR/AED; $70
