Today, in my first day back to work, I participated in a full day of CRP, AED, and general safety certification. I feel like one of the few thing my public school education afforded me was a general understanding of first responder knowledge about such things as CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. But, I can’t remember a time where I actually got hands on training.
Today was that day. I compressed, breathed into, shocked and resuscitated a dummy numerous times. It was a fun time together with my colleagues, as well.
