CPR Certification at Fire CO1.

Full house last week at Company 1. During last weeks drill members from Company 1 participated in their biennial CPR recertification class and test. Members demonstrated how to successfully apply CPR to adults, children and infants. The use of our AED (automated external defibrillators) and how to check for choking.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is one of our most important tools in our arsenal. We don’t just train on it for our own safety but the residents of New Milford or any call we may come up on.

Back during late 2017 it was applied to one of our own who suffered a medical emergency while in route to a routine call. The quick thinking of our members along with this training helped prolong this members life.

Still thinking about joining but don’t know where to do it? Or are you looking for free training, great food, good laughs and a brotherhood like no other then look no further! Come down to one of our stations!
