With the Holiday season approaching quickly, there is no better time to give the gift of saving lives. How about giving loved ones CPR and First Aid education and training for life saving skills? It’s an extremely thoughtful gift and unfortunately a gift that many don’t think will be useful until faced with an incident. I never thought to give a loved one this type of gift until I got the dreaded phone call that my father was in the hospital because he became unconscious from choking. Thankfully, a bystander nearby had basic CPR and First Aid training was able to instantly react to save his life. If that bystander wasn’t there and knowing that no one else in my family has training, my father would have had a different outcome.
