Save a Life Saturday......and be prepared everyday.

If it hadn't been for the quick response of civilians in the crowd with some basic skills in emergency medical training on that tragic day in Tucson, January 8th, lives would not have been saved and the prognosis of those that survived might not have been so promising. While Ada & Don hope they never have to use the skills they learned, they joined an overwhelming number of Tucsonans at the American Red Cross's, "Save a Life Saturday" being held today at our local YMCA, and other Y's all over the country, in Honor of Representative Gabrielle Giffords. Whether it be a traffic accident, a swimming pool drowning, or any other emergency where you happen to be the first on the scene, a few lifesaving skills can sustain life until those with advanced training arrive. Remember the three C's; Check out the situation, get someone to Call 911, and provide Care. It can save lives everyday!

That is great! If you need to use it even once in your life - imagine the difference you can make.
