Organization Urges Community Members to Learn Skills Which Can Save Lives
DUBOIS – March is known to come in “like a lion” because of the traditionally harsh weather conditions as winter nears its end. On the other hand, April generally comes in “like a lamb,” as spring finally surfaces.
During this weather transition, the American Red Cross has courses and resources available for people to learn how to treat and prevent a variety of emergencies which may take place as winter leaves and spring approaches.
This March, the Red Cross will offer in-class training for community members to gain lifesaving skills and further prepare for potential springtime weather emergencies. Interested area residents can register for these courses by visiting RedCross.org or calling 1-800-REDCROSS.
The following courses will be offered by the PA Heartland Chapter this month. The classes will be held at the Red Cross office at 109 N. Brady St. in DuBois.
- March 29; 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.; Adult CPR/AED; $70
- March 29; 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.; Adult First Aid/CPR/AED; $90
In addition to scheduled courses, area residents, businesses, organizations and community groups can register for private instruction from the Red Cross. To register for a nearby individual class or private group instruction, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit RedCross.org.
