Earlier this month, JFS staff attended the American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED training provided by CJP Communal Security Initiative. Kaitlin McCarthy from Boston CPR Partners trained us on the use of an AED machine, along with becoming CPR certified, and administering First Aid to both Children and Adults.
Kaitlin had JFS staff break out into groups of 8 to practice these lifesaving procedures. Kaitlin, an ICU Nurse in Boston provided us with real-life examples during the training. Many JFS staff shared some of their experiences when handling a crisis situation. By the end of the training, all JFS staff felt comfortable and confident to help others in case of an emergency.
Thank you to Kaitlin McCarthy from Boston CPR Partners for coming to train and certify the JFS staff on very essential procedures. If you are interested in getting certified, please contact Kaitlin at [firstname.lastname@example.org].
