13 Aug CPR and First Aid Certification Training
NPS summer interns practicing CPR on infants
This section was definitely useful to know since we’re in the national parks this summer!
Santa Monica Mountains summer interns playing close attention to the CPR presentation.
Santa Monica Mountains National Park Service employee, Jonathan Huerta, led a CPR and First Aid Certification Training. This was my second time being certified; the first time was several years ago while I worked for the Los Altos YMCA. The amount of information we learned today was immense! We covered everything from bee stings and burns to amputated limbs. I am definitely glad I got to join in on this class, because it refreshed my memory on what to do in an emergency situation. I learned so much more than my first certification course. I now feel better prepared in case I have to perform CPR or assist an injured person. CPR is different when performing on an adult, child or infant. I would strongly recommend everyone take a CPR certification course if they have not already.
