Punjabi Community CPR/First Aid Education Event

Update on the CPR course: It will be held by Lifesavers First Aid Training at the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Sahib with Punjabi language translation. The date is to be determined, and registration fee is $25 each to pay for the company’s instructors. Given the number of heart attacks and strokes that have already affected our community, it would be great to spread this education to all individuals and families so that they know how to respond in the case of an emergency. A group of us worked together to organize this event which is designed for those who are new to CPR and first aid. It does not have formal certification. It will cover what to say when calling 9-1-1, how to perform CPR, how to use an AED (a machine used to save lives), and response to choking. Each person will get time to practice. Measures such as CPR can be lifesaving. 

Sign up and write your name and phone in the comments or click "Going", or sign up in person by going to the Gurdwara Sahib on Sunday. The Registration forms can be returned and fee can be paid next Sunday at our table at the Gurdwara Sahib. 

Please call us if you already are trained and want to volunteer to help out translating in Punjabi. Thank you to Jesmeen Deo for preparing the poster. 

Update: DATE has been set as August 11th in the Punjabi school building next to the Gurdwara Sahib (Guru Nanak Darbar). Please bring back your forms and money on Sunday July 8th at the Gurdwara table :) If you don't have a form you can fill one out there. Thanks for everyone who signed up. The times are either morning group 9am-12 pm or afternoon 1-4 pm.
