Happy Hour CPR Training ... Seriously! (April 1st)

Tired of the training room? Mandatory and required training, got you down? Ready to get serious about some lifesaving training in a not so serious way; take the American Red Cross CPR lifesaving training, certified class in an non-traditional setting….Happy Hour---no fooling on April Fool’s Day!

Take one standard adult CPR training class, which includes how to respond to an emergency, rescue breathing, choking emergencies, chest compressions, place it in a relaxed venue and you have Darke County Chapter’s inaugural offering of Happy Hour CPR. Class is being offered on April 1st from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 at the Bistro off Broadway, 117 E Fifth Street in Greenville.

“We’re taking our traditional OSHA approved, certificate provided training, and making it just a bit of fun, stated Lynne Gump, Executive Director of the Darke County Chapter, “ Being able to take lifesaving CPR class in a venue where ordering an adult beverage or having an excellent meal, I can’t figure out, why we haven’t thought of this before now!”

Traditionally from those who are required to take the training for work, a hobby or to maintain certification, there can tend to be some grumbling, some whining, because participants are required to attend. “We always try to point out that even if it’s work that requires you to have the training, the benefit of having the training is still there when you’re with loved ones and friends,” states Gump. Our goal for this class setting is to replace the whine, with, well maybe wine, or beer or even just a cola and nachos. Wear your jeans, sit back in comfortable chairs, enjoying the class only makes the training easier and retention rates could be higher. Participants can reserve their place in class by calling the chapter at 937.548.1002 or emailing or stopping by the chapter office at 130 Martz Street, suite six in Greenville. The normal fee is being charged for the class with scholarships available for the military members of military families. Traditional CPR and First Aid classes are held all month long and available dates can be found by calling the chapter or viewing their online calendar at The Darke County Chapter of the American Red Cross is a participating organization of the Darke County United Way.
