CPR Program: Bookings

"I spent this last weekend at a state meeting for school nurses. I never realized how blessed we are in this county to have Heart Safe La Plata! I heard over and over again from other nurses about the struggles they are having to get ANY AED’s in their schools. Some don’t even know where to start. I just want to say thank you to everyone involved that had the foresight, and cared enough to do this! What a gift to this community!"

Camy Kinney, R.N., Health Services Director, Ignacio High School

"I wanted to let you know I used my CPR skills this past weekend, and the person was successfully resuscitated. It was my first experience where I was the first responder to the incident. It was amazing how calm I was, how I was able to take notice of the room and safety precautions, and provide triage/orders for people helping.
   I heard your voice guiding me as I used my skills until help came. I wanted to thank you for your training. I have been BLS certified for over 20 years. I have renewed my license online many times, but I do believe it was the actual classroom practice that gave me confidence to provide care."


My son had a 4wheeler incident yesterday. He is fine; no stitches or broken bones. But since I had just had the class, I was confident, helped stop his bleeding, thought to treat him for shock, used blankets to comfort him, dealt with bystanders & impressed my husband who is a first responder.
