Over 100 get CPR training in Stanstead
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.
