First Aid/CPR training session offered
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will offer a one-time, three-hour training session in first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) the evening of Thursday, May 25.
Those who successfully complete the session will earn a standard first aid/CPR certificate through the Emergency Care Safety Institute.
The session will be held from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Society’s Cool Spring Nature Preserve, which is located at 1469 Lloyd Road, about six miles southwest of Charles Town.
The session will be led by Brian Kearney, a certified first aid/CPR instructor.
It is open to anyone with an interest but enrollment will be limited to 10 people and pre-registration is required. To register and get directions go to the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org.
The skills learned from sessions of this kind are valuable for everyone but PVAS is particularly interested in training individuals who lead groups of people in outdoor activities like hikes and natural history field trips.
There will be a fee of $70 for PVAS members and $75 for nonmembers.
