LVKCC General Membership Meeting
Citizen CPR Hands-only Training Class
Thursday, February 5
Wildlands Conservancy Training Center
As boaters we all know that being as prepared as possible for the unexpected is the best and safest way to enjoy our sport.
At our next general membership meeting we will be offering a Citizen CPR Hands-Only training class.
The class has two fundamental objectives:
- Describe when and how to perform hands-only CPR
- Demonstrate how to perform hands-only CPR.
Jim Schulte, CPR instructor and past LVKCC president, will be our instructor. There is no cost, unless you want to buy the practice dummy (pictured below) for $5.00. Instruction will take about 30 minutes and includes a video and practice session.
We will have our general membership business meeting following the class and some refreshments.
Hope to see you all there!
