|AmeriCorps volunteers demonstrate first-aid techniques|
On Saturday April 14, THINK Together’s Early Literacy Program partnered with the Orange County Red-Cross and hosted a community initiative certifying 83 people in CPR and first-aid.
Amy Estey, AmeriCorps member in Preparedness and Community Education and Michelle Catanzano, lead instructor of volunteers, led the training.
Five additional AmeriCorps members assisted with the training by leading small group instruction along with THINK Together AmeriCorps members providing translation.
Certifying our community residents in CPR and first-aid empowers and provides confidence to our community members in life-saving techniques.
The first session lasted from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and the second session went from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
