4-H and DOH team up to get CPR, first aid certified

4-H strives to teach life skills to youth that will help them to lead healthy and safe lifestyles and be productive contributing citizens of our community. As part of this initiative, local youth attended an American Red Cross CPR and First Aid certification course on Monday, June 6th at the Calhoun County Extension Office. Mrs. Vanessa O’Neal from the Calhoun/Liberty Health Department was on site to teach the course. In addition to their CPR certification, attendees earned their First Aid certification which included learning skills such as splinting, helping someone who is choking, and administering emergency treatment for open and closed wounds, burns, heat illness, stroke, and heart attack. Upon completion of the course, each member completed the test with a passing score and received their certification cards which will be valid for two years. We extend thank you’s to Mrs. Vanessa for her excellent teaching and our local health department administration for supporting 4-H. For more information, on 4-H activities or to volunteer with 4-H, please contact the Calhoun County Extension Office at (850) 674-8323. “The Foundation for the Gator Nation” an Equal Opportunity Institution.
