Hawaii: Learn CPR and AED to Help Save A Life!

See also

Aloha all you environmental readers!

Have you ever seen someone in your family or a friend that started to choke and gasp for air on something they ate and you didn't know what to do?

Have you ever wanted to help someone that was in an accident but don't know how to?

Have you ever wanted to take a CPR class?

If any of these questions have gone through your mind, now you can learn how to.

Here's a Hawaii fact:

Did you know that Hawaii has about 4,000 cardiac arrests in a year.

That's a lot of cardiac arrests! With CPR and first aid training, you can help save a life!

Now if you're thinking that CPR includes only mouth to mouth, it's not. In this CPR training you will learn the new method that is done with hands and the AED device.

The AED Institute of America teaches both hands on training for both certification and or for learning.

These classes are held at the YMCA, and are FREE!

The only classes that one would have to pay is for the certificate, and you do not need a certificate if you just want to learn.

Both CPR, AED, and First Aid educators Kim Williams (Paramedic), and Robin Fujiama (HFD firefighter) will teach and guide one to learn the correct methods in a situation when an event happens to arise.

Kim and Robin are also Hawaii Heart Foundation educators that teaches CPR to children. Even children can help save lives!

They will teach you the new methods of giving CPR, along with using an AED device. Their methods are updated and will help you on the long run. The CPR training includes learning on how to give adults, children, and infants the correct methods of CPR.

Kim is a great speaker and will give you examples on the worst case scenarios. She will also help you with learning on how to keep calm in an emergency situation. Both Robin and Kim will answer all your questions and also will help explain how things work.

As for me personally, after I attended their booked CPR and First Aid classes today, I learned many things and am now CPR / AED, and First Aid trained. I highly recommend taking their classes, because it will help on the long run.

Now, are you ready to take their CPR / AED, and First Aid classes?
