American Red Cross Lifesaving Courses
2:00 PM - 1:00 AM

American Red Cross Lifesaving Courses

Adult and pediatric first aid, CPR and AED courses are scheduled for Monday, April 20 in Springfield

The weather is getting nicer, which means it’s time to start the springtime activities such as mowing the lawn, gardening, grilling and kids playing on the playground. But consider this:

  • 70,000 people are injured annually mowing their lawn
  • 200,000 children are injured annually on playgrounds
  • 30,000 people are injured annually falling off ladders

 Spring can be dangerous! Who knew? Fortunately, The American Red Cross has the answer. Adult and pediatric first aid, CPR and AED courses are being offered in Springfield on Monday, April 20, beginning at 2:00 p.m. at the Clark County Chapter at 1830 N. Limestone St.

 Signing up is easy—just go to RedCross.org—and then you can rest easy knowing you will be able to help your neighbor who is firing up his grill for the first time, or the child who is bleeding from falling off the monkey bars. This spring, you will be more than ready for the nice weather; you’ll be trained for safety.

 In addition to the classroom lessons, the course includes a pre-class learning component. Rather than the standard “read and take a multiple-choice quiz” formula, the Red Cross took a page from the Xbox and Wii generation and students now use an interactive, animated, virtual learning formula. In short, they learn the basics of saving a life by playing a game in which they must respond to a real-life emergency. This is the first course using the simulation learning.

The courses result in a two-year Red Cross certification. The prices for the courses range from $55 to $85, depending on the courses chosen. Advanced registration is required. To register for a class or find more information, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit redcross.org/take-a-class.
