January 7th, 2012 marked our second largest fundraising initiative to date: our St. John Ambulance Emergency First Aid with Level A CPR Training Course! Veteran certified instructor Richard Martin donated his services for the day as 12 participants learned the ins and outs of adult CPR, emergency scene management, chocking techniques and more! The flexibility offered by Richard allowed everyone to propose first aid situations and lead to some improvised first aid techniques including slings with coats and bandages with belts and gloves.
All the participants left satisfied and more confident in their abilities to handle emergency situations. Thanks so much for everyone who registered and helped us raise almost $800 towards sending Dr. Kader and his assistant to Laos for our spay/neuter/vaccination drive!
