I'm in a playgroup and one of the moms organized a CPR class for us, as one of the moms recently had a near-fatal choking incident with her daughter and while talking about it, we realized not all of us would know what to do. They organized a CPR class, taught by the wonderful people at Harper's Embrace Lifesaver Program. It was free and I feel so much better now that I can handle these types of things.
The woman asked us to mention the organization to others, so I thought I'd make all of you aware of it. You can go to a class in the area already scheduled, or if you have a group of 5 or more willing to do it, you can have them come to you. Their website has a schedule or you can call them at 804-4357.
It's free, and takes maybe two hours of your time. But if you don't know how to perform CPR, or haven't had a refresher course in five or more years, it really is worth it!
