Recently, the American Heart Association released new guidelines on performing CPR in an emergency situation. This news got John Neely, the owner of South Shore Computer Repair in downtown Middleboro to have a conversation with one of his clients, Ed Dowd of Osha Safety Training Specialists, about offering a special class to area residents.
“We have been in Middleboro Center for almost two years now,” says Neely. “As a former firefighter, I am certified in CPR but it’s something that everyone should at least know the basics of, in case of an emergency.”
“There is almost no excuse for everyone not to learn some form of rescue techniques,” comments Dowd. “Lay people tend to be afraid to perform CPR because they don’t feel qualified or haven’t been trained, but everyone should know the basics. It could save someone’s life.”
In partnership with Osha Safety Training Specialists and Flat Iron Café, South Shore Computer Repair is sponsoring a class that will teach you how to perform the traditional methods of CPR, as well as the new methods as released by the American Heart Association. The cost of the class is $30. At the end of the session, participants will feel more comfortable with these life-saving techniques and will receive a certificate of completion.
The class is scheduled for Sunday, January 9, 2011 at 2:00 PM and is being held at Flat Iron Café, located at 444 Centre Street. The cost of the class is $30 per person and is limited to a class size of ten people. To reserve your spot in this CPR certification class, please contact South Shore Computer Repair at telephone number 508.947.1966 or at email address email@example.com.
“Middleboro, and the surrounding towns, have been so supportive of us since we moved here two years ago,” said Neely. “This is just my way of giving a little bit back to the community while also supporting two local businesses, Osha Safety Training Specialists and Flat Iron Café.”
The cost is only $30 per person but the life you could save with this knowledge is priceless.
