First Aid CPR – Life Skills Everyone Should Have

Do you know what to do in an emergency? We all know to call 911 but the first few minutes after an accident can be the difference between life and death. Knowing what to do in those crucial moments is something everyone can learn by taking a First Aid/ CPR course. 

As part of its community outreach, St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Westport has teamed up with Red Cross to bring a First Aid/ CPR course to the village. The course will be delivered in the church hall, . “Our outreach program is focusing on bringing in highly qualified professionals to offer the community access to skills and learning right here in the Village,” says St. Paul’s Kim Bonner. “First aid and CPR seem like the best place to start.”

The course will be held in the church hall, corner of George and Spring St on May 6 and will be a combination of online and in-person learning led by instructor Ingrid Hardy. Hardy runs her own business based in Kingston and has been teaching First Aid for the Canadian Red Cross since 2007. “I teach first aid because I believe it is a life skill. You can save your own life or someone else’s life. You never know when you will need the skills,” she says. 

Whether you are getting ready for a summer job, have been mandated by your employer or workplace, or even brushing up on your own skills, Ingrid can accommodate you. Full courses at various levels as well as recertifications will be offered. Please contact Ingrid Hardy directly to register. Space is limited. 613 840 5279 or
