During the last few weeks, eleven Plevna High School students have had the opportunity to attend CPR and First Aid training. Jodi Schuetzle taught the students using the American Red Cross guidelines. Students watched videos and were then able to practice the steps using mannequins. They were tested on how to perform CPR on an adult, a child, and an infant. They were taught how to care for both conscious and unconscious choking individuals. They also learned how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). The last thing the students learned about was how to execute first aid for wounded individuals.
Following successful completion of skills and written testing, the students have a two year certification in CPR for adults, children, and infants; and proper use of an AED. They also now have a three year certification in First Aid.
