MGH&FC Offers First Aid/CPR/AED Course

Summer’s in full swing with a lot of outdoor recreational activity happening, and with it the potential for medical emergencies.  Would you know what to do before the ambulance arrives?  Learn the basics of first response in a medical emergency by taking Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics’ next community First Aid/CPR/AED course on Thursday, July 11 from 5 to 9 p.m. at MGH&FC’s Learning Center, located next to the Shelton McDonald’s on Olympic Highway North.

Teaching the basics of applying first aid to adults, children and infants, this four-hour evening class covers essential skills for the community.  A fee of $40 (exact cash or check) is required in advance to cover the cost of books and materials, and an eCard can be made available upon successful completion of the course.  Comfortable clothing is recommended for all participants, and a Spanish interpreter can be provided on request. 

Early registration is advised as the class fills up quickly, and advance registration should be made at least ten days prior to the class, or by July 1st.  To pre-register, call the Learning Center at (360) 427-3609.
