After the recent death of FTC member Steve Detweiler, the cardiac arrest deaths of a local young high school athlete 5 years ago, a young UF athlete & ROTC cadet in November, as well as the testimony of FTC member John Davis about his remarkable and fortunate experience with his heart attack, it is clear that even athletes in excellent condition can be victims of cardiac arrest.
It would be great for all of us to know what to do when someone near us is in trouble so that we can help make sure that person could have the best possible chance of survival.
Please join us for a Special CPR/AED Training Class for FTC Members
Monday evening, May 16th at 7:00-8:30 PM
Held at Gator CPR, Address: 1029 NW 23rd Avenue, Gainesville FL 32609
Cost is $10.00 per person, cash or check made out to Gator CPR.
We can take the first 25 people who sign up, we will do another class in October if there is demand for it.
A light snack and beverages will be provided.
This is a non-certification course that will give members the knowledge and practice time performing CPR and using an AED device to gain confidence in being able to respond quickly and effectively in case a running buddy or another adult or a child collapses or is choking in our proximity.
