Over 100 get CPR train­ing in Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

One­hun­dred and twenty people re­ceived CPR train­ing at last Satur­day’s Stanstead Health and Safety Ex­hi­bi­tion, held at the Pat Burns Arena. “It was mostly people get­ting train­ing for the first time, but a few had come back for a re­fresher,” said Bruno Roy of Am­bu­lance Stanstead, one of the or­ga­niz­ers of the event. Those who took the free thirty minute train­ing course on Satur­day will re­ceive their train­ing cards from the Fon­da­tion des mal­adies de Coeur du Que­bec within a month.

There were less vis­i­tors to the in­for­ma­tion kiosks this year, so or­ga­niz­ers will be re-think­ing the event and mak­ing some changes. “We were pretty happy to get a lot of people for the train­ing, happy that they got in­volved,” added Mr. Roy.

The win­ner of the iPad mini was Amelie Com­tois, a Sher­brooke res­i­dent who was in town to play hockey and de­cided to take the train­ing. First Aid kits were won by Ri­hanna Brus, Marie-Eve Si­mard and Nick Dewey. Bike hel­mets were won by Alex Lafaille, Emilia Stone, Ni­cole Mongeau, Lu­cas Steven­son, Dy­lan Sisco and Yvonne La­je­unesse.
