SAGE will host a free CPR and Preparing for Emergencies program presented by the Summit YMCA on October 5, 1 – 2:30 pm.
Led by Sue Fieseler, Director of Community Wellness at the Summit YMCA, the program will highlight how to be ready for emergencies such as hurricanes, what to do if the power goes out, what to stock in your first aid kit, as well as teach simple first aid, identifying strokes, and hands-only CPR, especially geared for seniors.
According to the American Heart Association, adults older than 50 are 50 percent less likely to have CPR training than younger adults, although all can benefit from knowing the lifesaving method.
“Being prepared for disasters and emergencies is extremely important and a universal need. SAGE is happy to partner with the Summit YMCA to offer these important topics,” said Angela Sullivan, SAGE Executive Director.
