SHELTON, Wash. – Spring is here, and as people start getting back outdoors and more active the potential for accidents increases. You can be of great value to your community or workplace by knowing how to respond in a medical emergency before the EMT arrives.  Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is offering another community First Aid/CPR/AED course on Thursday, May 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Hospital’s Learning Center, located next to the Shelton McDonald’s on Olympic Highway North.

The basics of applying first aid, CPR and AED to adults, children and infants are taught in this four-hour evening course to prepare students with life-saving skills they can administer before medical help arrives.  A fee of $40 (exact cash or check) is required in advance to cover the cost of books and materials, and an eCard can be provided upon successful completion of the course.  Comfortable clothing is suggested for all participants and a Spanish interpreter can be made available on request.
