Every year the staff at TLC-ELC have training either in CPR or 1st Aid. MN Medical has provided this training for the past 24 years. We believe that it is important that all staff are prepared to act in case there is an emergency. The staff worked together in practicing on the dummies brought in by MN Medical. Thursday provided more training, a time of fun and serious work in each of the classrooms.
First you need to arouse the person – are they ok or in serious trouble…
Then you need to call for someone to call 911
Then you give compressions – 30 hard and fast (appropriate to the aged victim)
Of course, the camera won’t be there to catch it all
Then you give the 2 breaths and back to the compressions.
The babies on the table made it a little easier on our backs…
…but we can’t count on that ever being the case.
And back the baby goes to Mike, one of the owners of MN Medical.
