We are CPR/AED Certified!

Date: February 12, 2014 Categories: Blog

Last week, the staff of the Jefferson Children’s Advocacy Center attended CPR/AED training at the American Red Cross Training Center! We have all been certified for adult and pediatric CPR and AED!

Although we do not anticipate needing to perform CPR/AED, because of our frequent interaction with children, it is important to be prepared in case of emergency.

During the training, we learned how to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies in adults and infants, including the use of automated external defibrillators. Our skills were put to the test in front of the instructor as we were given a chance to practice on adult and infant manikins! Check out the gallery of the JCAC staff demonstrating our skills!
