Today our 1st Responders finished up their 27 hour refresher class. 1st Responders are required by the state to complete a refresher class every 2 years to keep up to date on their skills. Our class started Wednesday from 6-10, Thursday 6-10, Friday 6-10, Saturday 8-4:30 and Sunday 8-3:30 making for some long nights as most of our volunteers work 8 hour days during the week. A few of the things we covered were, patient assessment, long boards and splinting, CPR, childbirth and trauma assessment.
1st Responders from Pelican, Arbor Vitae and Woodboro also took part in the class held at Pine Lake.
