January Full Team Training: CPR

January’s monthly training was the full-team CPR training, an annual event, during which everyone took the American Red Cross CPR recertification exam. The rest of the time was split between a well-presented overview and demo by Mike McMillan, followed by numerous stations. Team members refreshed (or learned new) skills in infant and adult CPR, choking, using AEDs, and taking vital signs. All of these skills, like most of those learned for SAR, are perishable and need to be practiced often in order to be used with confidence when the need arises.
