Would you know what to do in a cardiac, breathing or first aid emergency?

Knowing that the right answer could save a life during an emergency, the ministry team members  at Covenant Bible Church got together for a hands-on learning course the past two Saturdays to become certified in CPR/First Aid training.

The course was open to anyone in addition to the Sunday School teachers, nursery workers, ushers, greeters and security team members at the church. After completion of their one day course the participants will receive a certification card in about three weeks.

The class was taught by Jordan Beard and Elizabeth Armstrong. Jordan is one of the medical personal for the Lincolnton High School Athletic Department and  Elizabeth works as medical personal for the Lincoln Charter School.

Participants learned Heartsaver/CPR for children, infants and adults, what to do if a person is choking, how to use an AED (Artificial Electronic Defibrillator), how to use an EpiPen if a life-threatening allergic reaction occurred, how to stop bleeding, how to prepare a splint, and how to help someone in situations where they might be overheated, had a neck injury or has an asthma attack.  

The program taught them critical skills and knowledge they needed to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives.
