Preparedness Playlist 2

As you know, part of the mission of the Red Cross is preparedness. Most people immediately think of getting ready for natural disasters, disaster relief, etc. But what about being prepared for a medical emergency?¬†Would you know what to do if one of your loved ones stopped breathing? I recently had to renew my CPR certification as part of my job at a daycare and realized that it is so important that everyone have some kind of training in this life saving skill. You never know if you could end up saving the life of a stranger or a close friend. Maybe even become a hero to someone and their family. So, check out redcross.org and enroll yourself (and friends) in a CPR class. It could be something fun you do together. While you’re at it, check out the songs that inspired this blog post:
