New First Aid and CPR program coming to the Village

We are working with our partners at Durham EMS to develop a hands-on training program for students in grades one through six which will be taught by a local paramedic.  Students will learn about the basics of first aid, see the equipment used by paramedics while learning about their profession, and get a tour of the inside of a working ambulance.  **Please note:   this is not a certification class, but rather a general overview of first aid safety.  Students in grades five and six will also get an introduction to CPR, with a chance to practise their skills in a hands-on environment.
