Winter is upon us and Alaskanâ€™s like to play as hard in the winter as we do during the summer. Alaskan winter weather may be a great excursion but it also comes with the fact that help takes longer to get to you due to weather conditions. If a family member or close friend went into cardiac arrest or got injured in your presence, would you be able to give them first aid or CPR? Get trained and be prepared to save a life if the unthinkable happens with today’s Alaska Rewards offer: for only $40 you’ll get both a HeartSaver First Aid class and a CPR Class from Team One Alaska ($80 Value), which will teach you life-saving skills you simply can’t put a price on.
Research shows that heart attack victims have double the chance of survival if they are immediately given CPR. Unfortunately, most Americans are not trained in this simple but crucial life-saving skill, even though it’s a fact that 70% to 80% of cardiac arrest emergencies happen in the home. To help lower this statistic, Team One Alaska has created two courses that will that are packed into one full day.
Who should take this class?Â These courses are for people who needÂ both the CPR and First Aid certifications. It is an excellent course for people who desire a basic understanding and skills for treating friends and family. It meets and exceeds the training needed for daycare staff, group home staff, construction workers, and non-medical people who may need to provide emergency first aid or CPR. Class Schedule:
