Neighborhood Watch programs in Sherburne County are about to make people even safer.
The Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a series of CPR and basic first aid classes for existing and new Neighborhood Watch program participants.
The course, made possible through a grant from the Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management Department, is designed to give people basic knowledge and skills to help deal with an emergency.
There are new guidelines for doing CPR and first aid, so those who take this course will receive up-to-date information on all the new methods.
The class will be taught by an American Heart Association instructor providing the ability to certify people in adult CPR, child CPR, infant CPR, AED (automatic external defibrillator) and basic first aid.
Pre-register by calling Sherburne County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Roxanne Schreder at 763-241-2535 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants must be in a Neighborhood Watch or be willing to start this free crime prevention program in their neighborhood to take advantage of this free training.
