It's not fun to think about emergencies. But as much as you hope they'll never happen, you do have to be prepared. CPR and first aid are things that everyone -- especially people who care for children and the elderly -- should know. After someone stops breathing, or the heart stops beating, he or she can survive for only 4 to 6 minutes before lack of oxygen results in brain damage or death. CPR can buy extra time for your loved one, until professional help can arrive, by artificially circulating oxygen to the brain.
Every year I host an opportunity for my swim families to attend a class to become CPR/1st Aid certified. I am so happy with how many people want to be prepared in case of an emergency.
This year it will be held on Wednesday April 30th in the Vistancia Clubhouse at 29701 N Sunrise Point, Peoria 85383 Building B
The 2 hour certification class will start promptly at 6:00 and is limited to 25 people (minimum age is 8 years old). The cost is $25 per person and can be paid with cash or check the night of the event. Since the Vistancia HOA is also advertising to their community please RSVP by emailing me at email@example.com ASAP to secure your spot. The first class always fills up and I will add another one (or as many) as needed but cannot guarantee dates as of yet.

In the meanwhile, if your schedule and mine do not match and as kids are home experiencing more freedoms from their normal routines and may be staying in new environments, please remember that drowning is still a very big risk.
* Inspect new environments for lack of appropriate barriers.
* Keep constant eyes on.
* Make sure pools are gated.
* Check the alarms and locks on your doors.
* Don’t forget to drain bathtubs.
* Empty buckets of water.
* Make sure hot tubs are secure.
* Know CPR.
We will be normal again. Let’s keep our children safe in the meantime from ALL the things.
