#ygkChallenge: Learn CPR and First Aid

cpr, first aid training, safetyWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Take a First Aid course.  This is such a great time of year.  Canadians are out of hibernation and flocking to the streets, parks, lakes, campgrounds and cottage to soak up as much of the beautiful weather as possible.  Sadly, one thing that often comes along with the sunshine is the possibility of injury while enjoying water sports and other outdoor activities.  Of course these types of dangers are with us all year round but now might be a good time to prepare yourself for a potential accident.  This week we challenge you to take a First Aid and CPR course.  Be ready to handle an emergency and give yourself and others around you peace of mind.  At the same time, get out there and have fun!  Knowing you have the tools necessary to stay safe will only make it that much better.
