Recently at the Houston South branch employees took part in American Heart Association First Aid and CPR training and certification course. This class was given by Warren Stapleton (51), who is an instructor for the American Heart Association thru Memorial Hospital Life Flight program.

This course teaches critical skills and knowledge needed to respond to and manage a first aid or sudden cardiac arrest emergency. The employees learned how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies, as well as perform CPR and use an AED.

We would like to thank Warren for his hard work and for providing the images and information.
