Members and Dispatchers Attend CPR Class
As part of Hatzolah’s Continuing Education/Training, all our Members and some Dispatchers recently completed a CPR class which included the new American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines, which were revised in late 2010. To keep the Instructor to Student ratio down, the same class was taught on two consecutive Nights with alternating halves of the Hatzolah Membership in attendance. We thank our very own David Blumenthal (P-12) who is a Certified AHA Instructor, for teaching the course. In the coming Months, Hatzolah intends to offer a CPR class for the Passaic/Clifton Community. Please contact our office (non-emergency) at 973-685-4911 for Sponsorship Opportunities.
